Community Profiles

Now available from the Census Home Page on the ABS website, Community Profiles are a collection of various tables showing Census data in detail for a chosen location. There are currently four community profiles available, with a fifth to be released on 19 December 2007:

  • Basic Community Profile - basic demographic information for an area including age, ancestry, income, education and family type
  • Indigenous Profile - key census characteristics of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander persons, families and dwellings, including comparisons with non-Indigenous people
  • Time Series Profile - contains tables similar to those in the Basic Community Profile, comprising data from the 1996, 2001 and 2006 Censuses
  • Place of Enumeration Profile - basic demographic information for an area, including age, ancestry, income, education, family type and more. The data are based on place of enumeration (i.e. location on Census night)
  • Expanded Community Profile - the most comprehensive Community Profile in the series providing extended data on key Census characteristics of persons, families and dwellings. The data are based on place of usual residence
  • Working Population Profile - key Census characteristics of working population data basked on Place of Work. The Working Population will be available from 19 December 2007
