About Brisbane Community Profiles

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.
