Social and Economic Impacts of COVID-19 reports

The  Economic Impacts of COVID-19 on Penrith City and Social Impacts of COVID-19 on Penrith City reports have been developed to support local services providers and others in responding to the increasing and emerging challenges of COVID-19 for our community. The reports encapsulate key findings from surveys with residents, businesses and the community sector, as well as collating publicly available data. They also summarise some key learnings to guide our response moving forward.

These two documents are a more comprehensive version of the Social and Economic Impacts of COVID-19 interim snapshot  published by Penrith City Council in 2021.

Penrith’s Health Snapshot

Healthy eating and physical activity are important for our wellbeing. The Health Snapshot covers issues such as healthy eating, physical activity, social connection, mental health and alcohol consumption. The included case studies showcase local projects making a positive difference in people’s lives.

The Snapshot contains data from local research in 2019 that was undertaken to understand residents’ perceptions of social connection, barriers to active transport and food literacy.

Health Snapshot provides demographic analysis for the City and its suburbs based on results from six Censuses from 1991 through to 2021. The profile is updated with population estimates when the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) releases new figures.
