Over the past few months, the ABS has been working on improving its time series spreadsheets. We are pleased to announce that the new Excel format time series spreadsheets have now been released on the ABS Website for customer evaluation and comment.
At this stage we have three sample workbooks available. These can be accessed via:

  • a link appearing in the 8501.0 Time Series Spreadsheets document on the ABS Website or
  • a link appearing in the News section of the ABS Website (click on News in the Home Page Navigator)

    These links provide information about the new product, access to the sample workbooks, and a further link to the 'Time Series Workbook Website Discussion Forum' (available at https://www.abs.gov.au/forums/timeseries.nsf). The Discussion Forum provides information regarding the underlying design principles, what we were trying to achieve in developing the product, and how the new format will benefit you. As well as providing you with information, we are seeking feedback on the new format, which will be analysed prior to finalising the specification for the full scale production process.

    If you wish to contribute to the discussion forum you must first register by providing the following details to mark.bolin@abs.gov.au:
