USING THE DATALAB
The DataLab is an interactive data analysis solution available for high end users who want to view and use ABS microdata without the system restrictions imposed in the Remote Access Data Laboratory (RADL).
Approved users will be able to access the Collection's de-identified unit records on a secure computer in a secure location within the ABS' premises. Advanced statistical analyses, for example multiple regressions and structural equation modelling, can be run using statistical software such as SPSS, Stata and SAS.
Users are supervised at all times and must not bring mobile phones, cameras, USB keys, laptops, palm pilots or similar transmission or storage devices into the secure location. All outputs produced by users in the DataLab are manually cleared for release after the session.
For more information about the DataLab please see the Microdata Entry Page.
