Information for making better informed decisions
Australians regularly provide the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) with information about their working life; how and where they live; family and family structures; what they spend their money on; and their hobbies or recreational activities. This wealth of information enables us to put together a picture of Australia.

Whether you are developing a policy for government, operating a private business or conducting research, we have information to help you. This web brochure provides information and examples about how demographic, Census, social, international trade and economic data can be customised to meet your needs and help you make better informed decisions.

Individual information is confidential
As Australia's official statistical organisation, the ABS has statutory independence from the Government. We depend on the goodwill and cooperation of Australians, businesses and other organisations to provide information in response to our many data collections. All information provided to us is protected by confidentiality provisions. When we release statistics the law requires us to do so in a manner that is not likely to enable the identification of a particular person or organisation.

Where to find ABS information
Published information is available free of charge on our website. Where data are not available on our website at the level of detail you require, our information consultancy service can provide you with customised data to meet your specific requirements. This service is priced to meet our costs in delivering information to you. Contact our consultants who will analyse your needs, discuss options, and provide you with an obligation free quote.

We are always looking for ways to improve our service to you. Please let us know how we can best meet your statistical data needs.
