How To Access ABS Statistics

The ABS web site

Improving the availability of official statistics to all Australians means everyone can now access all statistics on the ABS website free of charge.

You can download a range of data on the ABS web site, including:

  • electronic publications (in PDF and HTML);
  • Census data;
  • time series spreadsheets; and
  • data cubes.

Check out Topics @ a Glance for links to selected information and statistics arranged by topic.


Visit your local library to access a range of ABS publications.

Are you a Uni student or staff member? If so, your library has access to the full range of ABS standard products. Please see your librarian for more information.
