DataPacks are suitable for experienced data users who have their own database or analysis systems. DataPacks contain data for the main Census characteristics of people, families and dwellings for geographic areas ranging from a single Statistical Area Level 1 to the whole of Australia. Use DataPacks if you want Community Profile data for numerous geographic areas.

Sample DataPacks are based on the following Community Profiles:

1. A new General Community Profile (combined 2011 Basic and Expanded profiles)
2. Time Series (2006 to 2016) Community Profile
3. Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples Community Profile.

DataPacks will be available from 12 July 2017.
The following DataPack samples display the format of the 2016 data files complete with short header descriptors. They also contain metadata files and help documentation.

DataPack files will include 2016 Census data and Digital boundary files. The July release of DataPacks will include the three Community Sample profiles as listed above plus the Place of Enumeration Profile.
