ABS values

18.2 ABS VALUES

Underlying these mechanisms are the Australian Public Service and ABS values, which are the basis for the ethical standards for ABS employees.

As an Australian Public Service agency, ABS employees are required to abide by the APS values and the Code of Conduct. In addition, the ABS Corporate Plan sets out the more particular values of the ABS, which are material to the ABS' role as an independent provider of information for Australia.

These values are promoted through training courses and awareness raising. They are used as a reference for the actions and decisions of ABS staff, from senior management down.

The ABS values are:

    • integrity
    • service
    • professionalism
    • relevance
    • trust of providers
    • access for all.
