  • About this Release

The Community Profile Series contains six separate profiles aimed at providing information on key Census characteristics relating to persons, families and dwellings and covering most topics on the Census form. The profiles are excellent tools for researching, planning and analysing small and large geographic areas. They enable comparisons to be made between different geographic areas. The profiles which will be available for the 2011 Census will be: Basic Community Profile (BCP), Place of Enumeration Profile (PEP), Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples (Indigenous) Profile (IP), Time Series Profile (TSP), Expanded Community Profile (XCP) and the Working Population Profile (WPP).

Basic Community Profile

The Basic Community Profile (BCP) is the primary profile. It consists of 46 tables containing key Census characteristics on persons, families and dwellings. The data are based on place of usual residence. The BCP will be released in three phases. First release tables are those containing classifications which are relatively easy to process and will be available on release day. Second release tables contain Labour Force classifications which require more complex processing and will be available on the second release day. In third release the final geography area for Remoteness will be available.
