TableBuilder allows users to build their own tables using Census data items. For 2016, the ABS has reviewed the TableBuilder product, including the structure of the Census datasets (the type and number) to improve the user experience.
Census TableBuilder will provide the full range of 2016 Census data items and geographies and support a wide range of cross tabulations. There are three levels of Census TableBuilder access.
Census TableBuilder Basic
TableBuilder Basic is a free registered product that allows users to access basic datasets. Basic users have access to all TableBuilder features, including the ability to save a table online and to create custom recodes.
The ABS has consolidated the datasets that were available in 2011 to improve the user experience and allow users to cross tabulate with more data items. The 2016 Census TableBuilder Basic datasets are:

TableBuilder Guest is a free product that enable users to access the TableBuilder Basic datasets without needing to register an email address.
Guest users can create and download tables up to 10,000 cells, create and download graphs or thematic maps, and display data by counts or percentages. However, users will not be able to save tables, submit large tables or save recodes.
Census TableBuilder Pro
For the 2016 Census data release, the ABS has continued to improve the value provided to TableBuilder Pro users by including additional data items and geographies. The 2016 CensusTableBuilder Pro datasets are:

Accessing Census TableBuilder Pro requires a paid subscription. For information about subscription pricing, see Microdata prices.
While most data items are now available, data on employment, qualifications and population mobility will be available from November 2017. Data on Socio-Economic Indexes for Areas (SIEFA) and Remoteness Area geography will be available in 2018.
