05/08/2015 - The ABS no longer produces or sells DataPack CD-ROMs.
'2006 DataPacks' is a CD-ROM product containing 2006 Census of Population and Housing Community Profile data for all of Australia to the Collection District (CD) level and the matching digital boundary basemaps in generic Geographical Information System (GIS) format.
Please Note : There is no software included in this product.
This product contains data, digital boundary basemap files and metadata/referencing documents to enable the user to read the data. The 'data' and 'digital boundary basemap' files need to be opened in tabulation and mapping software to read both file formats.
The '2006 Datapacks' product contains the 2006 Community Profile Series data in CSV format and digital boundary basemaps in both '.Mid/Mif' and 'ESRI.shp' formats. There is a separate DataPack for each profile as outlined below:
|Basic Community Profile||
|Place of Enumeration Profile||
|Time Series Profile||
|Expanded Community Profile||
|Working Population Profile||
|Estimated Resident Population Profile||
A more detailed description of the DataPacks product, the release timetable and the geographic availability of each profile, is presented in the DataPacks Product Brief.
