Know your community profiling tool

Know Your Community – Key insights into Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Queenslanders, is a community profiling tool which enables anyone to build a community profile containing information and data about Queensland's first nation peoples and the communities they live in.

Whether you are developing a business case for investment opportunities, seeking information about regional employment rates, putting in a funding submission, giving a presentation, engaging with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Queenslanders, or just increasing your knowledge you can be assured that Know Your Community  will provide you with accurate and consistent information each and every time you visit.

Data is available from a range of topics relating to people and community, work and income, education and training, and housing for any Queensland Indigenous Location (ILOC), Statistical Area 2 (SA2), State Electoral District or Local Government Area (LGA).

Data is from the Australia Bureau of Statistics (2011 Census) and has been analysed and stratified against the same data for non-Indigenous Queenslanders.

Know Your Community has been developed by the Department of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Partnerships and the Queensland Government Statistician's Office within Queensland Treasury.

Visit the Queensland Government website to build a profile.

Justice resources community profiles

The Justice Resource documents were developed to provide assistance for the courts, for members of the legal profession and for people who come before the courts. They contain information about important dates and resources relevant to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander justice issues. In addition to justice issues the publications provide a useful snapshot of each community including population statistics, community events, local services and local contacts.
