About the beta release
This beta release allows you to preview ABS.Stat before it is released in its final form and gives you the opportunity to provide the ABS with feedback as we work to enhance the tool.
We will continue to load new datasets and update existing datasets in ABS.Stat as soon as possible after embargo on the data is lifted. However, data in this ABS.Stat beta release may not necessarily be the most up to date. You are advised to check the ABS website (abs.gov.au) for the latest data.
We have created an ABS.Stat release calendar which will give you an indication of what is available in ABS.Stat and when datasets are expected to be updated. It will also provide you with information on new datasets we plan to include in the future.
