Gain access to new ABS datasets

Several new datasets from the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) are now available for Flinders University researchers, thanks to an agreement between ABS and Universities Australia.

The Flinders University Library has compiled a list of all the new datasets, which includes:

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, 2011 Census and 2016 Census. Access this dataset here.

Business Longitudinal Analysis Data Environment (BLADE): BLADE combines business tax data and information from ABS surveys over time to provide a better understanding of Australian businesses and the economy. Access this dataset here.

Multi-Agency Data Integration Project (MADIP): This 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. Access this dataset here.

A few other new microdata products are also now available:

  • Participation, Job Search and Mobility, Australia, 2021
  • Preschool Education, 2020
  • Motor Vehicle Use, 2020
  • Education and Work, May 2020
