The General Community DataPacks (GCP) include information on key Census characteristics for people, families and dwellings, such as age, education, income, housing and employment. It replaces the Basic and Expanded Community Profile DataPacks and has been created by merging elements of both these profiles.
DataPacks are suitable for experienced Census data users who have their own database or analysis systems. GCP DataPacks contain data for Census geographies from Australia down to Statistical Area Level 1 as well as Local Government Areas, Postal Areas, State Electoral Divisions and Commonwealth Electoral Divisions. This release includes the following additional geographies: Section of State, Section of State Ranges, Urban Centres and Localities and Significant Urban Areas.
DataPacks are provided in CSV format and associated Census boundary files are available for loading into geographic information systems and/or client custom built systems.
