About Brisbane Community Profiles

Brisbane Community Profiles makes it easy to find and analyse data. As a business, you can understand your market. As a resident, you can research different locations in Greater Brisbane and Brisbane City Council areas.

Using the latest demographic, social and economic data, you can generate profiles about:

  • the people who live in an area (resident profile)
  • workers and businesses operating in an area (workforce profile)
  • how an area has changed over time (time series profile).

You can also compare data from two different areas.

Data is sourced from the Australian Bureau of Statistics, Commonwealth and Queensland Governments.
