HOW TO USE THE MATRICES


Migrant Data Matrices Data Cube


To view details of the migrant related data items(s) included in ABS products, click on the Migrant Data Matrices data cube link in either the left hand navigation pane or in the topic page of your choice (e.g. Population Characteristics).

The Migrant Data Matrices data cube shows which migrant related data items are available for each of the source products (ABS surveys). The Migrant Data Matrices data cube is presented in a number of formats; alphabetically, by survey reference year and for each topic. Each data cube is represented by a Product name (i.e. column headers). If data is available for a migrant related data item a 'yes' appears in the corresponding row of that data item in the column. Where '-' appears in the matrix, the data item was either not collected or, in some cases, is available only upon request.

Whilst in the Migrant Data Matrices data cube, you simply click on the Product name (i.e. column headers) to download the data cube of your choice.

Matrices by Topic

ABS products are grouped by topic and may appear under more than one topic heading. There are nine topic groups: Population Characteristics; Labour; Family and Community; Health; Education and Training; Housing; Personal and Household Finances; Culture and Leisure and Crime and Justice.

To obtain detailed information on the contents of any of the nine topic groups, simply click on the topic in the Contents page or on the topic in the left hand navigation pane.

To access a data cube for a selected ABS product, simply go to the column on the left in the table containing the links to the data cubes. To open a data cube, simply click on it and select either Open or Save in the dialogue box.

To view the Main Features for any of the selected ABS products, simply go to the column on the right in the table containing the links to data cubes and the 'Main Features for Source Product'. For each product a link is provided. Clicking on this link will take you to the Main Features of the selected publication.

Please note that although data items may have been collected in an ABS product (indicated by 'yes' in the matrix), data may not be available in the data cube due to issues such as sample size and confidentiality. This will be indicated in the data cube with a cell comment 'np' indicating that the data is 'not for publication'.
