2001 Census data on Indigenous Australians

The complete set of Indigenous Profile (IP) tables, incorporating the additional 17 tables from second release, are also now available. These tables contain detailed census data for Indigenous people and where possible, provide comparisons with the non-Indigenous population. The data is based on where people were counted on Census night. IP tables for Indigenous Areas, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Commission Regions, States/ Territories and Australia are available, free of charge from the ABS web site.

Indigenous Profiles for other areas are also available for purchase from the ABS web site.

More information on these profiles can be found in the free booklet "Making the Most of Your Census". Call 1800 813 939 to receive your copy.
