DataLab test files

Test files containing synthetically generated randomised data have been created based on the Modular Product and are available from the Downloads tab.

These test files allow researchers to become familiar with the product’s structure and prepare code prior to accessing the product through the DataLab.

Each data item in the test files will contain only valid values and will have approximately the same distribution as found in the product. However, the relationships between data items (e.g. service counts and service payment amounts) may not be consistent. Each test file represents one module of the Modular Product. For example, the file labelled MADIP Modular Product, 2011-2016 Higher Education Test File corresponds to the Higher Education Module. A single test file based on the Census 2016 module is provided to test both the Census 2011 and Census 2016 modules, given the similarities in content and structure.
