Time Series Profile now available
The early release of the 2001 Census Time Series Profiles (TSP) on 28 January 2003 occurred more than one month ahead of schedule.
The TSP contains 22 tables similar to those in the Basic and Expanded Community Profiles. The Profile comprises data from the 1991, 1996 and 2001 Censuses (where the classifications are comparable). Some classifications have been redefined to ensure data comparability between censuses. Footnotes have been added to the tables where this is the case.
The TSP provides clients with the information to conduct analysis and compare statistics across a number of years. The data contained in the Profiles are based on place of enumeration and 2001 Census boundaries.
The TSP is available for the following geographies: the Australian Standard Geographical Classification (ASGC) areas of Statistical Local Areas (SLA), Statistical Subdivisions (SSD), Statistical Divisions (SD), Local Government Areas (LGA), Statistical Districts, States and Territories and Australia.
The TSP is accessible from the ABS web site, www.abs.gov.au/census, at the Australia level they are free and then a charge of $10 per area for all other areas.
