2006 CENSUS – Second Release

2006 CENSUS – Second Release

Census data is released in two stages. The variables released in the first stage are the tick box questions from the Census form. Second release data consists of the variables that required a handwritten response and so require more complex processing.

The second release of 2006 Census of Population and Housing data will progressively become available from October 2007. Second release variables for MapStats, QuickStats, Census Tables, Basic Community Profiles and Indigenous Profiles include: labour force status, occupation, education and qualification attainment, dwelling location one and five years ago, and method of travel to work.

Second release data builds on the already extensive range of Census information currently available on the ABS website, including the recent first release of the community profiles (Basic, Indigenous and Time Series). Census DataPacks of these community profiles in CD-ROM form are also now available for purchase. A full list of first and second release variables is available in the Census Dictionary, 2006 (cat. no. 2901.0)

For further information contact the National Information and Referrals Service on 1300 135 070 or email client.services@abs.gov.au.
