ABS - committed to quality data


The ABS is committed to providing Census users with accurate and timely Census data. This commitment is supported by the Census data quality declaration. The declaration provides information about the quality of Census data in terms of its relevance, timeliness, accuracy, coherence, interpretability and accessibility.

Data Quality Statements are also produced for each Census data item. They outline non-response rates for each variable, known quality issues specific to each data item, and comparisons with other ABS data collections, where available.

An up-to-date list of Census data errors and corrections is also available. When data quality issues are identified, changes are reflected on this site and detail the issue, the affected product/s and proposed actions in place to address the issue.

The data quality declaration, data quality statements and list of data errors and corrections are available to view at http://www.abs.gov.au/websitedbs/d3310114.nsf/Home/census%20data%20quality
