DataPacks are designed for clients who have existing databases or analysis systems, for example Geographic Information Systems or other mapping and tabulation systems.

DataPacks contain no software.

There are six Community Profile DataPacks and an Estimated Resident Population DataPack.

The Profile DataPacks are:
  • Basic Community
  • Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples (Indigenous)
  • Time Series
  • Place of Enumeration
  • Expanded Community
  • Working Population.

Please see DataPacks details for information about:
  • software and system requirements
  • descriptors (short, long and sequential)
  • how to order DVD DataPacks.

DataPacks online are free of charge, but you need to register and log in to download them.

Sample 2011 DataPacks (with no data) are available to download, to help you decide whether DataPacks are suitable for your needs and for your databases or analysis systems.

Note: To obtain the data for a single geographic area as a formatted 'Community Profile Table', go to Community Profiles.
