Contains the Census Dictionary (2901.0), the Catalogue of Publications and Products (1101.0) and information about other 1996 Census products such as CDATA96 and the 1996 Census Community Profiles and Census boundaries.

CENSUS KEYDATA are also designed to distribute 1996 Census Community Profiles data and Census boundaries which are stored on the CD-ROM in an encrypted format. Clients can select any number of Community Profiles or boundaries and generate an order form, which also calculates the total price for the order. On receipt of the order and payment, the ABS will supply a decryption key which will allow the selected data to be downloaded from the ROM to the client's network or hard drive. If, at a later stage, the client requires additional data, it can be selected and ordered in the same way, and an additional decryption key provided to the client. Standard ABS software to manipulate, view, print and export the data are also provided. The statistical data can be easily exported for most PC-based spreadsheet packages. The boundary data are provided in MapInfo format which can be used with MapInfo or spreadsheet packages containing MapInfo-based software.
