Regional Profiles (SA3)
The Regional Profiles are a consolidation of a broad section of regional information, presented in an easy to use format. The Regional Profiles contain nine tables that cover a range of socio-economic indicators including education, skills, labour force characteristics and industry structure. They also include links to additional information on these topics as well as early childhood development and income support.
The reports use the Statistical Area 3 (SA3) geographical boundary which is defined by the ABS'Australian Statistical Geography Standard (ASGS).
The SA3 boundary was selected as it will allow for use with 2011 ABS Census of Population and Housing data when released. There is usually a great deal of geographic and socio-economic similarity within an SA3 region making comparisons between regions easier.
Please refer to the Regional Profiles User Guide when using the Regional Profiles. The User Guide contains important information that supports the interpretation of the Regional Profiles data:Regional Profiles User Guide
