NOTE: The order of the person characteristics in the all persons template have been changed to Total persons, Male, Female, Indigenous persons; and for the Indigenous low count a colon (:) has been added after Indigenous persons and further indentation of the Male and Female fields.
The following 2006 Census QuickStats templates are provided as a guide to the QuickStats product which will be available when the data from 2006 Census is released. The templates may be downloaded free of charge from the Details tab.
QuickStats is a summary of key Census data relating to persons, families and dwellings and also contains a small textual description of the statistics contained within the tables. QuickStats is not inclusive of all Census topics, instead providing a selection of general topics and data about a chosen area. The data displayed covers a range of social, economic and demographic statistics, and includes main responses for a selection of variables.
All QuickStats include Australian data to allow users to compare results from their selected region with the Australian totals.The summary produced includes variables such as age breakdowns; a selection of birthplaces, languages and religions; employment information etc. For users interested in small geographic areas, say around 100-250 persons, QuickStats is a valuable resource.
When the 2006 Census data is released, QuickStats will be available, with 2006 data, in a printer-friendly format and free of charge from the ABS web site (www.abs.gov.au).
