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, planning and analysis. Community Profiles are available in hard copy or electronic formats.

The following
2001 Census Community Profile Series templates are provided as a guide to the standard tables which will be available when the data is released. Users are encouraged to take maximum advantage of this early release of the templates in preparation for the release of 2001 Census data from mid-2002. Users will be able to determine well in advance which data will be available free (eg Basic Community Profile data at Statistical Local Area level), what data will be available as standard output and plan requirements from customised tables accordingly. Please note that release dates vary across the different Community Profile types.
