ABS Profiles to Help Local Communities

Not for Profit organisations businesses and individuals can now get five years of key economic and social information about their local area,
easily, free-of-charge and in one location – on the Australian Bureau of Statistics web site.

The ABS has expanded its National Regional Profile (NRP) to provide five years of data, spanning 1999 to 2003. It has also added indicators, including sources of income and the value of agricultural production.

Andrea Woods of the ABS Rural and Regional Statistics National Centre says that with the click of a button, people can get a picture of their local area through the NRP including population, births and deaths, unemployment, income support customers, taxable income, wage and salary earners, building approvals, sources of income and motor vehicle sales.

Woods says people and organisations that need a snapshot of their local region now have access to more information and are able to see changes in their region over time. They also can compare their local area to other regions.

She says the new profiles are available for most regions from Local Government Area up to national level.

The ABS developed the Regional Profile in response to requests for more accessible information on regions. The ABS says that more indicators will be added in the future, to make the profiles even more comprehensive.

The National Regional Profile for different regions can be
downloaded free from the ABS web site at www.abs.gov.au.
Click on Statistics by Region on the home page and then to National Regional Profiles.
