Release of 2001 census templates for the Community Profile Series
The proposed output formats and dissemination mechanisms lso attracted considerable comment. As a direct result of user preferences, Excel and Comma Separated Value formats have been adopted as standard electronic formats for the 2001 Community Profile Series. However, the option to obtain profile tables in other electronic formats will continue to be available, but at an additional cost to users. Hardcopy continues to be popular amongst many census data users and will not incur any additional cost above that for the standard electronic formats.
For the 2001 Census, release of templates for the Community Profile Series has been achieved earlier than for any preceding census. The advantage of this early release is that users will have the opportunity to consider their data requirements over a longer period. They will be able to determine which data will be available free (e.g. Basic Community Profile data at Statistical Local Area level through www.abs.gov.au), what data is available as standard output and plan their requirements for customised tables if required.
Users are encouraged to take maximum advantage of the early release of the 2001 Census Community Profile Series templates in preparation for the release of 2001 Census data in mid-2002.
Currently, the Basic Community Profile, Time Series Profile and Expanded Community Profile templates can be accessed from the Census web site. When the templates for the Indigenous, Usual Residents and Working Population Profiles are finalised in the near future, they will also be included on the web site.
These documents will be presented in a new window.
