NEW LOOK FOR abs.gov.au

The ABS web site has changed! We asked our web site users and with their help, we've built a better site. The new design is easier for you to use and navigate. Accessing Census data has never been simpler.

The new look site provides:
• Improved navigation—the introduction of consistent, global navigation and ‘Quick Links’
• More meaningful terminology—clearer language to help you navigate
• Greater consistency
• Search—an improved Search facility now available from every page

Key features:
• Corporate information navigator
• Statistical information navigators
• Search
• Left-hand navigator—’Quick links’
• Product and Media releases
• Right-hand navigator—National Regional Profiles
• Right-hand navigator—other information

The section of the site previously known as 'AusStats' has also undergone a major redesign. ABS statistics, including Census data, can now be accessed from the 'Statistics' link on any ABS web page.

The new design provides improved navigation to information and statistical products, which are now available for viewing by:
• Catalogue Number;
• Release Date;
• Topic (such as Economy, Labour Force);
• Title; and
• Search.

Related product information is now grouped at the top of the page with Title, Issue and Release details. The product is broken-down into components using five navigation tabs so associated information is easier to find.
You can access these recent improvements to our web site design by using the 'Statistics' link on any ABS web page
