COMMUNITY PROFILES

The Community Profiles provide comprehensive statistical pictures of areas in Excel format. They consist of predefined tables of Census data and include most topics on the Census form. Community Profiles can be used to compare the social, economic and demographic characteristics of different geographic areas.

The Community Profiles have been reviewed and rationalised. As a result, there are three profiles in the 2016 Census Community Profiles series and they are described in more detail below:

    • General Community Profiles
    • Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples Profiles
    • Time Series Profiles.

Community Profiles are available for most of the geographies in the 2016 Australian Statistical Geography Standard, from state level down to Statistical Area Level 2. For the 2016 release, the Community Profiles are longer be available at the SA1 level, however this information will be available in TableBuilder. For more detail on which geographies are available for each profile, see the Community Profile geography table at the end of this chapter.

Most data from the 2016 Census is available in the Community Profiles on 27 June 2017. Census data relating to employment, qualifications and population mobility will be made available within the Community Profiles from October 2017.

For the 2016 Census, what were the former Community Profiles relating to Place of Enumeration and Working Population data will only be available through DataPacks.

General Community Profile

The General Community Profile is new for the 2016 Census. It replaces the Basic and Expanded Community Profiles and has been created by merging elements of both these profiles.

It contains a series of tables showing the characteristics of persons, families and dwellings in a selected geographic area.

These tables are available for a wide variety of geographic regions, ranging from national and state level down to Statistical Area Level 2. The data is based on place of usual residence (that is, where people usually live, rather than where they were counted on Census Night).



Note: Small random adjustments have been made to all cell values to protect the confidentiality of data. These adjustments may cause the sum of rows or columns to differ by small amounts from table totals.

Some tables include comparisons with the non-Indigenous population.

As with the General Community Profiles, this information is available for a range of geographic areas, from the national level down to Statistical Area Level 2. The Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples Profile is also available for geographies within the Indigenous Structure, such as a Indigenous Regions and Indigenous Areas. See the Australian Statistical Geography Standard (ASGS): Volume 1 - Main Structure and Greater Capital City Statistical Areas, July 2016 (cat. no. 1270.0.55.001) for more information about the Indigenous Structure.

Time Series Profile

This profile compares data from the 2006, 2011 and 2016 Censuses (where the classifications are comparable). Where classifications have been revised between each Census, data will be provided on the classification used for the 2016 Census. To provide comparability between Censuses, the revised classifications will be concorded and footnotes added to the tables to indicate this. Relevant concordance files will be available from the ABS website.

The data is based on place of usual residence, that is, where people usually live. The Time Series Profile will be available for a range of geographies, from Australia down to Local Government Areas and Statistical Area Level 2. For more detail on which geographies will be available, see the Community Profile geography table below.
