The Victorian Transport Statistics Portal (VTSP) provides access to data that will be of interest to anyone who wants to better understand transport trends in Victoria. Data comes from a number of sources, including the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS), VicRoads and the Department of Transport, Planning and Local Infrastructure.
The VTSP can be interrogated to profile transport issues at a Local Government Area (LGA) level. For many datasets, it also provides information on further levels, such as the Statistical Local Area (SLA) level, the Statistical Area Levels (SA) 2, 3 and 4 or the State suburb level.
The State Region level shows data for Victoria, metropolitan Melbourne and the Balance of Victoria. As for the Census 2011 data there has been a new definition of the metropolitan area, data is shown for this newly defined area under Greater Melbourne, while previous data is show under the label metropolitan Melbourne. The World Cities geographic level provides the opportunity to compare Melbourne with other cities around the world.
The VTSP also has a mapping function that is available for some of the geographies. These are: LGA, SLA & each of ABS Geography types. Please note, not all topics and categories for these geographies will return a map as there maybe no data for the selected criteria.
For definitions of each geographic area, please view the Glossary.
