National Regional Profiles: five years of facts
The latest version of the National Regional Profile (NRP) is now available on the ABS web site and it is more useful than ever. It now has five years of data (1999–2003) instead of providing a one-year snapshot of your area of interest. And it's free!

What's new?
The new version allows you to see changes in the economic and social characteristics of a particular region during this five-year period, such as:

  • population
  • births and deaths
  • remoteness
  • unemployment
  • wage and salary earners and
  • income support customer numbers.

The latest NRP also includes new indicators:
  • new data on sources of income, combining Australian Taxation Office data and income support payments, and
  • data on the value of agricultural production.

More indicators are intended to be added in the future to make the profiles even more comprehensive.

Where is it?
To access the new NRP, go to Regional Statistics. You can search for your area of interest by name or by map.
