An introduction to the Australian Census Longitudinal Dataset

This article, which introduces the new Australian Census Longitudinal Dataset (ACLD), is the first in a series of articles analysing and demonstrating the ACLD and gives just a small glimpse of the type and range of information that the ACLD can provide. It focuses on a number of key questions: How did peoples' labour force status and industry change? Are school leavers still studying or working? Who continued to provide unpaid assistance? Who continued to volunteer? Is the English proficiency of recent migrants improving?

Throughout 2014, the ABS will produce a series of articles from the ACLD which are expected to cover the following broad areas of interest: work; housing; transport; mobility; disability and caring; and educational attainment.

More articles available in future releases.
