USING THE ON-SITE DATA LAB
The ABSDL is the data analysis solution for high-end data users who want to extract full value from CURF microdata. It offers a richer and more interactive experience of the data than is possible in the ABS Remote Access Data Laboratory (RADL) and is available in ABS Offices in each state and territory.
While the ABSDL can be used to access Specialist (customised) CURFs it can also be used for analysis of Expanded CURFs. There are no automated protections of data within the ABSDL, which means that you can undertake cross tabulations and other forms of analysis beyond what is possible in RADL. Your outputs will be reviewed by ABS staff before their release to you to ensure the confidentiality of respondents is protected.
ABSDL is provided on a cost-recovered basis, with a base price of $2,590 (including GST). Of this, $2,030 covers the one-off set up cost, and $560 provides one standard ABSDL session of 3.5 hours. Additional sessions are priced at $560 per 3.5 hours or part thereof.
Clients in universities participating in the ABS/Universities Australia Agreement are entitled to a specified ABSDL service - for which there is no charge to the individual user. This is because Universities Australia has paid for access on behalf of universities.
