30/01/2008 Note: Indigenous Profile for Remoteness Areas has been issued.
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 2006 Census will be: Basic Community Profile (BCP), Place of Enumeration Profile (PEP), Indigenous Profile (IP), Time Series Profile (TSP), Expanded Community Profile (XCP) and the Working Population Profile (WPP).
The Indigenous Profile (IP) consists of 34 tables containing key Census characteristics of Indigenous persons and households. Some tables provide comparisons with the non-Indigenous population. The data are based on place of usual residence. The IP will be released in two phases. First release tables are those tables containing classifications which are easy to process and are available on release day. Second release tables contain classifications which require more complex processing and will be available on the second release day.
All Community Profiles are available on the ABS Website, or through the ABS Consultancy Service.
