The 1991 Census Time Series Community profiles present key tables from the Basic and Expanded Community profiles where the data is comparable across the censuses for Local Government Areas (LGA) in Australia. These profiles are made up of 22 tables giving data for both persons and/or dwellings from the 1981, 1986 and 1991 censuses.

This table contains data relating to the age of people by their sex. Counts are of all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders, based on place of enumeration on census night which; includes overseas visitors; excludes Australians overseas; and excludes adjustment for under-enumeration. The data is by LGA 1991 boundaries. Periodicity: 5-Yearly.
