Image: Using TableBuilder USING TABLEBUILDER

For general information relating to TableBuilder and instructions on how to use the features of the TableBuilder product, please refer to the User Manual: TableBuilder (cat. no. 1406.0.55.005).

More specific information applicable to this 2012 SEW TableBuilder product, which should enable users to understand, interpret and tabulate the data, is outlined below.


Weighting is the process of adjusting results from a sample survey to infer results for the total population. To do this, a 'weight' is allocated to each sample unit. The weight is the value that indicates how many population units are represented by the sample unit.

As the underlying format of the SEW TableBuilder file is structured as a single person level, there is only one weight provided - a person weight. That is, all tables produced provide estimates of the number of people with particular characteristics. The Summation Options section in the Customise Table panel in TableBuilder contains this weight. As there is only one weight available the person weights will be automatically applied when producing tables.


Field exclusion rules exist when two or more data items cannot be added to the same table due to confidentiality risks within the data. In the SEW TableBuilder there are restrictions with the number of geographic data items that can be added to the same table.
