Multiple regions can be compared using the National Regional Profile SuperTABLE datacube. Click here to access the SuperTABLE datacube.
When you specify geography in the datacube, you will see two 'Total Australia' headings - when you open the 'twistie' next to each heading, you will see different regions. The first 'Total Australia' heading opens to show states/territories, Local Government Areas and Statistical Local Areas. The second 'Total Australia' heading opens to show states/territories and the other regions (Statistical Divisions, Statistical Subdivisions, Statistical Local Areas).
With the SuperTABLE software, you can query and manipulate large amounts of data and extract tables containing relevant information suited to your requirements. SuperTABLE allows you to perform functions such as calculating averages, or adding sub-totals, and the reports you create can be saved in other file formats such as XLS, WKS, TXT or CSV.
For further information including how to download SuperTABLE free from the Space-Time Research website, see What are data cubes?
For further information on using the SuperTABLE data cube in the National Regional Profile, see the Demonstration Videos.
SuperTABLE does not distinguish between zero and annotations such as 'n.a' (not available) and 'n.p.' (not published) - these all appear in the datacubes as '-'. The Excel spreadsheets for each region do contain zero, n.a. and n.p. as appropriate.
Note: If you wish to compare a small number of regions, an option is to do this by downloading the Excel spreadsheets for the regions of interest.
