Working Population Profile

The much anticipated Working Population Profile (WPP) was released at https://www.abs.gov.au/websitedbs/d3310114.nsf/Home/census on 29 February 2008. The WPP is the final release in the 2006 Census Community Profile series; it takes a closer look at the characteristics of Australia's working population.

The WPP gives you access to a range of data, including how many people work full-time or part-time, their incomes, which industries they work in, which industries have people working long hours, which occupations utilise the Internet, and how people travel to work. The Working Population Profile is available for a variety of geographic areas, from the whole of Australia down to Place of Work Statistical Local Areas.

How can I access the Working Population Profile?

- access profiles for a large number of areas, and
- import profile data and digital boundaries into their own data analysis system.

Each DataPack on CD-ROM is priced at $115 and includes digital boundaries and the Community Profile data. Call 1300 135 070 to discuss your requirements with an ABS Information Consultant.
