Second release census data now available

On 19 November 2002, the Australian community gained access to the second release of data from the 2001 Census. This release consists of variables that required more complex processing and includes information on education, labour force, industry, occupation and journey to work. Second release data builds on the already extensive range of census information available. Access to the new data enables researchers, analysts and the community more broadly, to gain a
better understanding of Australians and how they live.

The tables that make up the Basic Community Profiles, Indigenous Profiles, Snapshots, Classification Counts and Census Basics products are now all complete. To ensure the widest possible access to census information, a large amount of data is again available free of charge on the ABS web site

Basic Community Profile

The Basic Community Profile (BCP) provides detailed census data down to small areas in tables containing key census characteristics of persons, families and dwellings. The data are based on where people were actually counted on Census night. All 33 BCP tables are now available.

BCP tables down to Statistical Local Area level are provided free of charge via the ABS web site
