CDATA96 and Add-On Datapaks - now even better value!

The ABS is offering, for a short time only, CDATA96 and related Add-On Datapaks at a very affordable price. Australia, State and Territory versions of CDATA96 have been reduced by 30% while Add-On Datapaks have been reduced by 50%. These reductions represent substantial savings on very valuable research tools.

CDATA96 is a user friendly CD-ROM product which provides extensive 1996 Census data, digital boundaries and base map data which enables mapping of data and identification of landmarks such as major roads and rivers. CDATA96 includes the Basic Community Profile (BCP) and the Time Series Profile which provide a social and demographic picture of the population at the time of the 1996 Census and how it has changed since the previous two censuses.

CDATA96 is an invaluable planning tool, providing instant access to detailed information on Australia's population and its demographics such as age, education, housing and income.

Increasing the useablity of CDATA96
While CDATA96 is a highly effective manipulation and mapping tool, some census data users require more detail on certain aspects of the Australian population e.g. occupations, indigenous status or other socio-economic characteristics.

To meet these requirements the ABS has developed
Add-On Datapaks . These are modules of additional data that can be added to CDATA96, allowing access to more detailed information and increasing the utility value of the overall package.

There are
six datapaks to choose from, all at 50% off :

    Working Population Profile
    This profile contains 17 tables of labour force and related data on the characteristics of employed people who are included in the journey to work study areas.

    Usual Residents Profile
    If you need accurate demographic data based on where people usually live then the usual Residents Profile is invaluable.

    Expanded Community Profile
    The Expanded Community Profile contains more detailed versions of some BCP tables as well as additional tables. For example, "Occupation" in the BCP has 11 categories while in the Expanded Profile there are 116.

    Indigenous Profile
    The Indigenous Profile provides 26 tables for Indigenous Areas, ATSIC Regions, States and Territories. The first three tables of selected characteristics are available at Indigenous Locations.

    Estimated Resident Population
    This profile contains the Estimated Resident Population counts by Statistical Local Area by five year age groups and sex as at 30 June 1991 and 1996, based on the 1996 Census boundaries.

    SEIFA96 provides five indexes which enable the grouping of Australians according to their socio-economic attributes. It provides an index/comparison tool for assessing areas according to urban or rural advantage, economic resources, education and occupation. It is essential for identifying areas of higher and lower socio-economic advantage for academic and marketing research. SEIFA96 can be used as a Add-On Datapak to CDATA96 or can be just as effectively used as a stand-alone product.

    Datapaks can be mapped, tabulated, graphed or exported in the same way as the Basic and Time Series Profiles within CDATA96.

    If you would like more information or would like to arrange an obligation free demonstration of CDATA96 or SEIFA96 contact the National Information Service on 1300 135 070 or e-mail
