About ABS.Stat

ABS.Stat Beta is an interactive free online tool that presents data in a searchable, flexible and dynamic way.

ABS.Stat provides users with two options:
  • a web browser interface where you can view, query and download data;

  • and
  • a web services interface described in a machine-processable format using the Statistical Data and Metadata Standard (SDMX) allowing machine-to-machine mechanisms for accessing and sharing ABS data
  • The ABS.Stat web interface allows you to:
  • search and discover ABS statistics
  • query, view and download data - choose pre-packaged data or customise data to your own requirements
  • view valuable metadata alongside the data
  • export data in a range of formats such as Excel and CSV as well as SDMX.
  • The ABS.Stat web services allow the exchange of data between computer systems, or machine-to-machine services. The web services allow the ABS to share data through a programmatic interface across the internet.

    Full User Assistance for both options is available from the top right hand navigation bar.
