HOW TO SELECT A REGION OF INTEREST
The National Regional Profile can be accessed from the 'Regional Statistics' links on the ABS home page. Users can select a region by name or drill-down to the area they want using maps.
Once you have selected 'Main Areas - by Name', select a region of interest from the lists - eg select 'Australia'.
This will take you to a set of web pages for your region of interest. On the Summary tab, follow links to find data under the topics 'Economy', Population/People', 'Industry' and 'Environment/Energy'. In the Details tab, there is a more detailed Excel spreadsheet for your region of interest.
HOW TO COMPARE REGIONS OF INTEREST USING SUPERTABLE
This latest release of the National Regional Profile allows users to view/download data for many regions using SuperTABLE. SuperTABLE is a powerful software used for manipulating multidimensional ABS datasets (data cubes). SuperTABLE Software is used to create tables that can be easily converted to Excel format. As the ABS is progressively releasing more data in SuperTABLE format, users of data cubes will need to be familiar with SuperTABLE. Below are some examples of the types of analyses that can be undertaken followed by a demonstration on how to generate the data using SuperTABLE.
Alternatively, the ABS can generate this information for you for a fee for service. If you are interested in this service please contact Lina Hughes on ph: (08) 8237 7383 or alternatively e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
The following are examples of the types of analyses and regional comparisons that can be undertaken using data derived from the National Regional Profile. The first two graphs compare property sales and values for Playford (C) and Salisbury (C) with South Australia. The third graph compares the age structure of Salisbury (C) with South Australia and the fourth graph presents the changing age structure of Salisbury (C) from 2000 to 2004.
In the following analysis changes in Property Sales for Playford (C), Salisbury (C) and South Australia between 2001 and 2004 are compared. Between 2001 and 2004, the average value of residential sales in Playford (C) and Salisbury (C) have remained below the South Australian average. However, in terms of growth rates over this period, the average value of residential sales have increased by 76% for Playford (C), 91% for Salisbury (C) and 68% for South Australia.
