HOW TO USE THE MATRICES

The migrant data matrices provides links to the data available on migrants from a range of ABS data sources.

Use the interactive Migrant data matrices data cube, the A-Z list of data cubes or the Topic pages to streamline the content and to navigate to the data.


The migrant data matrices data cube

This interactive migrant data matrices data cube (located in Data Downloads) shows which migrant related data items are available for each of these source products (ABS surveys).
It's presented in a number of formats:

  • alphabetically
  • by survey reference year
  • by topic

Each migrant data cube is represented by a Product name (i.e. column headers in the example table).
If data is available for a migrant related data item, a 'yes' appears in the corresponding row of that data item. Where '-' appears in the matrix, the data item was either not collected or, in some cases, is available only upon request.
A filter table is also available to quickly select data items of interest, and short-list the corresponding migrant data cubes.
You simply click on the Product name to download the data cube of interest.

A - Z List of Migrant Data Cubes

Matrices by Topic

ABS products are grouped by topics and data cubes may appear in more than one topic.
There are nine topic groups:
  • Population Characteristics
  • Labour
  • Family and Community
  • Health
  • Education and Training
  • Housing
  • Personal and Household Finances
  • Culture and Leisure
  • Crime and Justice.

To obtain detailed information on the contents of any of the nine topic groups, click on the topic in the left hand navigation pane.

To access a data cube for a selected ABS product, go to the column on the left in the table containing the links to the data cubes.
To open a data cube, click on it and select either Open or Save in the dialogue box.

To view the Main Features of any of the selected ABS products, go to the column on the right in the table containing the links to data cubes and click the 'Source'. For each product a link is provided. Clicking on this link will take you to the Main Features of the selected publication on the ABS website.

Please note that although data items may have been collected in an ABS product (indicated by 'yes' in the matrix), data may not be available in the data cube due to issues such as sample size and confidentiality. This will be indicated in the data cube with a cell comment indicating that the data is 'not for publication'.
