Community Profiles are a set of standard tables which contain key social, demographic and economic characteristics of people, families and dwellings. The Profiles, which form the core of many Census products, are available for Australian Standard Geographic Classification (ASGC) areas and other standard Census geographic areas. They are an economical way of obtaining a statistical picture of a community and making comparisons between different areas or different population groups - an excellent tool for research and planning.

The Community Profile Series will be available in hardcopy or electronically with a selected range of tables available via the Internet. Electronic versions of the Community Profiles will continue to be provided with free windows-based manipulation software which allows users to view, select and print data. It is anticipated that 2001 Census Profiles will be available in formats suitable for use with a range of spreadsheets and databases.

The Series comprise:

Basic Community Profile
Indigenous Profile
Time Series Profile
Usual Residents Profile
Expanded Community Profile
Working Population Profile

The Indigenous Profile (IP) will be released in two stages and contain 29 tables reflecting the key characteristics of persons, families and dwellings. Comparisons with the non-Indigenous population are provided for the majority of tables. The IP will be available for Indigenous geography, with some tables available for Indigenous Locations, and others available for Indigenous Areas, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Commission (ATSIC) Regions. It will also be available for Main ASGC geography comprising Statistical Local Areas and their aggregates.
