The Queensland Regional Profiles are statistical reports using the latest demographic social and economic data that help you answer these question and more. To create a report is easy. Go to the Queensland Government Statistician's Office homepage. On the left hand side of the page under key links click on Queensland Regional Profiles. In only six steps you'll have your own tailored report.
Step 1. Select the type of report you want from one of the five report types, if you hover your mouse over the individual report types an explanation of the report is provided. For this example we will use "resident".
Step 2. Select the geography interface from the drop down menu. You can drill down as far as Statistical Area Level 2, which includes between 3,000 and 25,000 people. In this example, let's choose Local Government Area, 2016.
Step 3. Select your region of interest by clicking in the white space under list selection, or click on the map. By selecting more than one region you can create your own customised region and you can name that region. Here we've chosen Bundaberg and Gladstone and named it Eastern.
Step 4. Select a comparison region. If a comparison region is required select from the options. In this example we will select "no comparison region required".
Step 5. Select your profile topics using the drop-down menu or leave the default as "frequently updated topics". If you don't want all the topics click on "show topics", clear the topics and then click on the required topics. Depending on the geographical region you're looking at, some of the topics may not be available, and these will be greyed out. For example, business counts are not available at the local government area level.
And lastly step 6. Select the file type for your report. Here we've chosen a PDF. And here is your PDF report which you can save or print out. If you wish to run this profile again go to page 2 of the report and select "to run this profile again please click here". This will produce a new report with the latest data and pre-selected regions.
Please note the Queensland Region Profiles are revised and updated on an ongoing basis, so there may be some difference between what you see in the tutorial and what you see when you use the Queensland Regional Profiles.
Now you can share and know your community.
