Expanded Community Profile
The Expanded Community Profile (XCP), released one month ahead of schedule on 6 May, provides detailed information about an area's population.
The Profile is the most comprehensive of the Community Profile series, comprising more detailed versions of some of the Basic Community Profile tables, including some additional tables.
Two of the new tables are Ancestry by Birthplace of Parent by Sex and Age by Internet use by Sex. The data are contained in 49 tables and are based on place of enumeration.
The XCP is available for the following geographies: the Australian Standard Geographical Classification (ASGC) areas of Statistical Local Area (SLA), Statistical Subdivision (SSD), Statistical Division (SD), Local Government Area (LGA), Statistical District, States and Territories and Australia.
The XCP is accessible from the ABS web site and is free at the Australia level. However, a charge of $75 per area applies for all other levels of geography.
Working Population Profile
The Working Population Profile (WPP) contains 19 tables of labour force and related data on the characteristics of employed people.
The WPP provides a range of data, including how many people work full-time or part-time, their income ranges, which industries they work in, which industries have people working longest hours, which occupations utilise the internet, and how people travel to work.
Two new tables that have been included are Industry by Internet Usage by Sex; and Occupation by Internet Usage by Sex.
This Profile is based on where a person works, rather than where they live or where they were counted on census night.
The WPP is available for the following geographies: the Australian Standard Geographical Classification (ASGC) areas of Statistical Local Area (SLA), Local Government Area (LGA), Statistical Subdivision (SSD), Statistical Division (SD), States and Territories and Australia and the Census Geographic Areas of Journey to Work Study Area.
In previous censuses, Journey To Work (JTW) Study Areas were limited to major urban areas in each State and Territory. For the 2001 Census, JTW coding has been expanded to encompass the whole of Australia (excluding External Territories). Therefore, each State and Territory consists of a Detailed Study Area and an Extended Study Area. Data is available for these two types of study areas at the SLA level from the ABS. The Profile has been developed for those analysts who need to study the working populations of SLAs in the capital cities.
Details of the new JTW Study Areas are provided in a Fact Sheet.
The WPP, released on 17 June, is accessible from the ABS web site and is free at the Australia level. A charge of $10 per areas applies for all other levels of geography.
