· Search Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander Peoples QuickStats
· Search Country of Birth QuickStats.
Each of these search tools require you to select a Census year (2016 being the most recent data available) and enter a location into the search field. A predictive list of search items begins to display after typing the first three characters and will be continually refined as subsequent letters are typed.
After a valid location has been selected, clicking the go button will open the QuickStats page.
To use the first search tool, Search QuickStats, select the Census year you want data for (from the dropdown menu) and enter a location. Data is available for the 2016 Census year through to the 2001 Census year.
In some cases, you will be faced with different options for the location you’ve entered. For more information about selecting geography structures for your QuickStats search, see Census geography basics.
Note: The Search QuickStats tool also includes a link to Advanced search, which allows you to search for a location or geographical area of interest using additional tools including text search, address search and search by map.
For an overview of the geographic structures with data available, see QuickStats geography table.
Search Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander Peoples QuickStats
With the release of 2016 Census data, a new QuickStats search was introduced - Search Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander Peoples QuickStats. Data on Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander peoples and households is available for the 2016 Census year, for main statistical area geographies and Local Government Areas.
Note: If wanting to complete a geography search on Indigenous Structures: Indigenous Regions (IREG), Indigenous Areas (IARE), or Indigenous Locations (ILOC), use Search QuickStats instead.
For more detail on which geographies are available, view the QuickStats geography table.
Search Country of Birth QuickStats
The third search tool, Search Country of Birth QuickStats, offers access to summary population characteristics based on a persons stated country of birth. Data is available for 2016 and 2011 Census years at the national, State/Territory and Greater Capital City Statistical Area (including Rest of State region) levels.
Data is available for the top 53 countries of birth for both Census years. Additional countries will be progressively made available to see 2016 data available for the top 107 countries of birth.
This search tool behaves slightly differently to the others – once you have selected the Census year, you will need to enter the country of birth of interest. Selecting ‘go’ then launches the QuickStat for persons who reported being born in the country and are living in Australia.
From here, you can drill down to State/Territory and Greater Capital Statistical Area regions.
While certain countries are available for selection in 2016, some may be invalid when combined with certain areas. Such combinations will be greyed-out and will not be selectable.
QuickStats Country of birth concepts
The ‘top’ countries of birth are determined by counts of persons who reported being born in that country of birth, at the national level. Families and households in QuickStats Country of Birth are determined by the responses of the Reference Person (Person 1 on the Census form) and/or their spouse or partner. Migrant dwellings relate to occupied private dwellings that include at least one person who was born overseas. This means that the migrant dwelling count captures all dwellings where any individual within that dwelling was born overseas, not just dwellings where a parent was born in a particular country.
