ABOUT THIS RELEASE
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
Time Series Profile
Usual Residents Profile
Expanded Community Profile
Working Population Profile
The Working Population Profile (WPP) will contain 19 tables of labour force and related data on the characteristics of employed people. For 2001 Census, the Journey to Work (JTW) study areas have been expanded to include all Statistical Local Areas in Australia. Details of the new JTW study areas will be provided in a Fact Sheet and made available on the ABS web site.
Community Profiles are available on the ABS Website, or through the ABS Consultancy Service. The recommended retail price (RRP) is applicable for each single community profile purchased. (For example, a Basic Community Profile for a single collection district = $10, Basic Community Profiles for five separate collection districts = $50). An appropriate labour charge is added to the RRP when Community Profiles are disseminated through an ABS consultant (for example, one Basic Community Profile for an aggregate of Collection Districts = $10 plus labour). Standard Bulk Sets of Community Profiles are also available through ABS consultants.
