We will soon release the 2003 series of Regional Profiles. Each Profile is available at Local Government Areas (LGAs), Development Commission Regions (DCRs) and other geographic areas within Western Australia.

The Profiles provide users with the latest up-to-date statistical information (from ABS and non-ABS sources) on a range of social, economic and environmental topics. Topics include population, households, employment, education, internet use, crime, health, agriculture, fisheries, forestry, mining, transport and tourism. This year's Regional Profiles will also provide additional data analysing Youth and Older Persons in your area.
