The Community Profile Series contains three 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 2016 Census will be: General Community Profile, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples Profile, and the Time Series Profile.

The General Community Profile is new for the 2016 Census. It replaces the Basic and Expanded Community Profiles and has been created by merging elements of both these profiles. It consists of 59 tables containing key Census characteristics on persons, families and dwellings. The data are based on place of usual residence. The General Community Profile 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.
