It’s time to update the .id link page on your website
Check the link text to the .id resources on your council website. Does it still say it has the “new” data from the 2001 census? We’ve checked and lots do!
As you know, the suite of .id tools (.id profile, .id atlas, .id economy, .id forecast) are managed websites, hosted and regularly updated by .id. Councils that subscribe to these tools provide a link from their own websites to the .id tools for their council area.
The links are normally under a Council website heading, such as “Community Demographics” or “Local Statistics” or “Population Statistics”.
Each link is normally prefaced with a brief explanation of the site such as:
The City of Example Community Profile is designed to inform community groups, Council, investors, business, students and the general public. To achieve this, the Profile is formatted to present the data in simple, clear tables and charts with concise factual commentary.
The City of Example Community Profile now includes the first release of results from the 20xx Census of Population and Housing.
So as you can see, it’s important to update this text to reflect the new Census 2011 data.
To update the links to reflect the latest census release data, we suggest you update your website link page with the following text for each of your .id tools. Just please remember to change “City of Example” with your own council name!
The City of Example Community Profile enables you to analyse the population characteristics of your community, understand how they have changed over time and how they compare to other areas.
The profile presents data from the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) Census of Population and Housing in 2011, 2006, 2001, 1996 and 1991 for the local government area, and for smaller areas within it (e.g. suburbs). This data is presented in easy to use tables, charts and commentary covering a wide range of Census questions.
The profile answers the majority of frequently asked socio-demographic questions and assists Council, the general public, students, community groups, organisations, business and investors to become more informed about the community.
You can also include a graphical element
