CLIB 2001 Final Release arriving soon @yourLibrary

You will shortly receive your copy of CLIB 2001 Release 3. This final release provides the most comprehensive set of free electronic data available from the ABS Census of Population and Housing.

CLIB 2001 is the CD-ROM census product developed by the ABS specifically for libraries eligible through the LEP. It was designed to provide wide ranging statistical information of interest to the community.

Release 3 will offer libraries a range of installation options including the run-off-the-ROM option. Some libraries may prefer the other options of installing it to the hard drive of their PCs or using CLIB on the web. More than one type of installation can be used on your PC. Release 3 will be compatible with Internet Explorer version 5.5 and above.

As the final release for CLIB 2001, Release 3 will contain ALL previously released data, as well as additional Community Profiles including:

  • Complete Usual Residents Profile - provides a better understanding of the population that normally lives in an area. Other profiles in the series use data based on the place where the person was counted on Census night (which may or may not have been their home). For example, Australia's ski fields see an influx of tourists in August (when the Census is held) - having Usual Residents data reflects the characteristics of such areas in 'normal' periods.
  • Complete Expanded Community Profile - gives more detailed information about an area's population by providing more categories within a classification. Some of the new tables are Ancestry by birthplace of parent by sex and Age by Internet use by sex.
  • Complete Working Population Profile - shows data on the characteristics of employed people. Data include how may people work full-time and part-time, what incomes they have, in which industries they work, which industries have people working long hours and how people travel to work.

    All previously released data such as Indigenous Profiles and Time Series Profiles, will be included in Release 3.
