Statistics data for researchers

Researchers are reminded that the Australian Bureau of Statistics/Universities Australia agreement allows researchers from Flinders to access various confidentialised datasets at no cost.

Australian Census Longitudinal Dataset
This dataset uses the Census of Population and Housing to build a longitudinal picture giving an overview of social and economic change over time. Three waves of data have so far contributed to the ACLD from the 2006 Census (Wave 1), 2011 Census (Wave 2) and 2016 Census (Wave 3). It can be accessed at this link.

Multi-Agency Data Integration Project
The Multi-Agency Data Integration Project (MADIP) is a partnership among six Australian Government agencies to combine longitudinal information on healthcare, education, government payments and personal income tax with population demographics to create a comprehensive social picture of Australia. It can be accessed at this link.
