Time Series Profile

The Time Series Profile presents data from three Censuses, based on the geographical boundaries for the most recent of the three. Comparing data from different Time Series Profiles is not valid, because geographical boundaries are subject to change between Censuses. Within a Time Series Profile, data for the two previous Censuses is concorded to the geographical boundaries for the most recent one.

The 2011 Time Series Profile compares data from the 2001, 2006 and 2011 Censuses where the data classifications are comparable. If a data classification has been revised between Censuses, data will be output on the classification that has been used in the 2011 Census. Footnotes explain the correspondence between the data classifications of previous Censuses and the 2011 classification. The data are based on place of enumeration (where people were counted on Census night).

The change in the geographical classification standards for the 2011 Census has a slight effect on Time Series Profiles. For example, the Statistical Local Area (SLA) used in previous Censuses is no longer available as a defined region in the new standard. As a transitional arrangement, and only for the 2011 Census, Time Series Profiles have been released at the SLA level.

The 2006 Time Series Profile compares data from the 1996, 2001 and 2006 Censuses and is based on 2006 Statistical Local Area boundaries. Where data classifications have been revised, data are output on the classification used for the 2006 Census.

The data in the 2006 Time Series Profile are based on place of enumeration, not place of usual residence, because there was no CD of usual residence in 1996. To provide comparability between Censuses, revised and corresponding data classifications have been created and applied across the 1996 – 2006 Censuses. Footnotes regarding these revised data items are added to the tables accordingly.
