From the Australian Statistician


The Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) collects a wide range of data via household and business surveys. Statistical outputs resulting from household collections include the Census of Population and Housing, the National Health Survey and the Labour Force series; while outputs from business surveys include National Accounts, Retail Trade series and quarterly Business Indicators. All published data are available for free on the ABS website.

This Charter specifies what you can expect when the ABS approaches you for inclusion in any of our household or business surveys. We seek to continually improve our relationship with survey participants, and would appreciate your feedback in relation to any contact you have with the ABS, and on the standards identified in this Charter in particular.

We recognise and greatly appreciate the support of the individuals and organisations who contribute to the ongoing wealth of statistical information about our nation by participating in ABS surveys. It is only with your assistance that the ABS can continue to produce the statistics that contribute to quality informed decision making.
