Colin Menzies Accessible Census useful – easy – affordable

Knowledge you can afford … and can’t afford to be without: 

Knowledge you can afford … and can’t afford to be without Turning Census numbers into community knowledge is time-consuming. As planners, we need Census analysis that is quick, affordable and useable. Our Community Planning Products save planners time by doing basic analysis. Built in Excel™, they are easy to use.

Different products, to suit your needs: 

Different products, to suit your needs The ABS produces six Community Profiles from the Census. Good data here, if you have time to dig. Most people use just the Basic Community Profile (BCP) for their demographic data. But for most localities, the ABS produces more profiles – (warning: initials ahead!) the URP, IPP, WPP, XCP and TSP.

Key Features: 

Key Features Designed for use, not filing An emphasis on words and pictures Customised charts Traceable tables with key results highlighted Easy cut-and-paste, reformat, publishing

Community Portraits : 

Community Portraits your basic demographic profile for any area compares two Censuses (now 1996/2001; coming 2001/2006) compares your area with a chosen broader area, to give meaning to data 35 topics covering age, households, incomes, skills, employment, travel, housing and culture. 5,000 words of text and 50 charts.

Other Portraits: 

Other Portraits The Residents Portrait turns the URP into a 15-page profile of your permanent residents. The Indigenous Portrait uses the IPP and the BCP to compare the living standards of indigenous people with others in a community. The Workers Portrait uses the WPP and URP to examine your local economy, looking at your workforce, industries and occupations.
