ABS HOUSEHOLD SURVEYS PROGRAM REVIEW

During the year ABS consulted extensively with social statistics users in its review of the ABS Household Surveys program. ABS collects its social statistics from a number of sources including the Population Census, administrative data (such as births or courts), the monthly labour force survey, and a range of general and special social surveys. An outcome of the review was to set out a schedule to collect statistics from its general and special social surveys. Other statistics such as labour force and demographic statistics are still available from other ABS sources. Every 3 years a general social survey will be conducted and will include an Indigenous sample supplement every six years. In addition a multi-purpose household survey covering a range of topics in less detail will be run every two out of three years in response to user needs.
