Get More Out of CDATA 2001 - with Add-On Datapacks

CDATA 2001 - Full GIS or CDATA 2001 - Quickbuild contains data from the Basic Community Profile and the Time Series Profile.

More value and flexibility can be built into either of these CDATA products by purchasing the Add-On Datapacks. Add-On Datapacks focus on different population characteristics and are available for all States and Territories.

The following Add-On Datapacks have been produced for the 2001 Census:

  • Estimated Resident Population (released: June 2003)
  • Expanded Community Profile (due for release: July 2003)
  • Indigenous Profile (released: June 2003)
  • Usual Residents Profile (released: June 2003)
  • Working Population Profile (due for release: July 2003)

The Datapacks are available as separate modules, individually priced, in formats suitable for direct installation into CDATA 2001. Please note that the price of the Add-On Datapacks varies according to the Profile/s and geography level purchased. A listing of the prices is included below.

More information on the Add-On Datapacks can be found in the CDATA 2001 section of the ABS web site or by contacting the National Information and Referral Service on 1300 135 070.

A brief description of each of the Add-On Datapacks is included below:

Estimated Resident Population (ERP)

The Final Estimated Resident Population (ERP) provides for each State and Territory ERP counts by Statistical Local Area (SLA) by five year age group and sex as at 30 June 1996 and 2001, based on the 2001 Census. This data is a useful resource for a wide range of commercial and government analysis.

Expanded Community Profile

The Expanded Community Profile contains 49 tables including more detailed versions of some of the Basic Community Profile tables.

Indigenous Profile

The Indigenous Profile (IP) contains 29 tables that provide key census characteristics of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander persons, families and dwellings. Some tables provide comparisons with the non-Indigenous population. The data are based on place of enumeration.

Usual Residents Profile

This profile contains 28 tables drawn from the Basic and Expanded Community Profiles. This is the only Community Profile based on place of usual residence. The other profiles are based on where people were enumerated on Census Night, which may not have been where they usually live.

Working Population Profile

The Working Population Profile contains 19 tables of labour force and related data on the characteristics of employed people. This Profile is based on where a person works, rather than where they live or where they were counted on census night.

Other Datapacks
The standard CDATA 2001 contains Basic Base Map data comprising highways, major roads and rivers, localities and railway lines. The Detailed Base Map Data Datapacks, released in September 2002, contains features such as post offices, schools, hospitals and more. Detailed Base Map information makes identification of relevant features faster and more accurate. Another CD-ROM product providing lifestyle groupings of Australia's communities, known as Socio-Economic Indexes for Areas (SEIFA) is also fully compatible with CDATA 2001. More information about SEIFA, due for release in September 2003, can be found in the next issue of Census Update.
