Census microdata products are designed for complex data queries such as detailed analysis and modelling on appropriately confidentialised unit record data.
The following microdata products are available from the 2016 Census of Population and Housing:
- Detailed Microdata files of person, family and dwelling records in the DataLab (5% sample)
- TableBuilder (all records).
These products contain comprehensive data on demographic, household and family characteristics, with data item lists for each product available on the Downloads tab.
Apply online for access to Microdata files and TableBuilder at www.abs.gov.au/microdata/apply
A Basic Confidentialised Unit Record File (CURF) will be released later this year via MicrodataDownload.
This publication was previously known as Microdata: Census of Population and Housing, Census Sample File.
