Census

Census of Population and Housing - Details of Undercount, 2011 (cat no. 2940.0)
This publication presents estimates of net undercount for the 2011 Census of Population and Housing, resulting from the Census Post Enumeration Survey (PES). The PES is a household survey conducted by the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) immediately after each Census, in order to provide an independent measure of Census coverage. As well as providing 2011 net undercount estimates by a range of demographic characteristics, this publication also details how the 2011 PES was conducted and how 2011 net undercount estimates have been calculated.

Census of Population and Housing: Basic Community Profile, 2011 First Release (cat no. 2001.0)
The Community Profile Series contains six separate profiles aimed at providing information on key Census characteristics relating to persons, families and dwellings and covering most topics on the Census form. The profiles are excellent tools for researching, planning and analysing small and large geographic areas. They enable comparisons to be made between different geographic areas. The profiles which will be available for the 2011 Census will be: Basic Community Profile (BCP); Place of Enumeration Profile (PEP); Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples (Indigenous) Profile (IP); Time Series Profile (TSP); Expanded Community Profile (XCP); and the Working Population Profile (WPP).


The Basic Community Profile (BCP) is the primary profile. It consists of 46 tables containing key Census characteristics on persons, families and dwellings. The data are based on place of usual residence. The BCP will be released in three phases. First release tables are those containing classifications which are relatively easy to process. These tables were released earlier this year. Second release tables contain Labour Force classifications which require more complex processing and will be available on November 20 in the third release scheduled for March 3 2013; the final geography area for Remoteness will also be available. The full release schedule is available on the ABS website.
