APPENDIX POPULATIONS AND DATA ITEMS LIST


DATA AVAILABLE ON REQUEST

The ABS has a range of data available on request from the Retirement and Retirement Intentions topic. This section lists the data items and populations to which they relate. More detailed breakdowns of the data items are available in an Excel spreadsheet, as a data cube (Appendix - B&I and R&RI 2008-09 Data Items List).

The population(s) for a particular data item refers to the people in the survey to whom the data relates. Where alternate output categories are available for the same data item, these are shown and the data item name is followed by a bracketed numeral (e.g. country of birth (2)).

Note: The populations for this topic are numbered from 16-24A. Populations 1-15A relate to the Barriers and Incentives topic (cat.no. 6239.0) alongside which this survey was run.
