Using the DataLab

The DataLab is an interactive data analysis solution available for users to run advanced statistical analyses, for example, multiple regressions and structural equation modelling.

The DataLab environment contains up-to-date versions of SPSS, Stata, SAS, R and Python analytical languages. Controls in the DataLab have been put in place to protect the identification of individuals and organisations. These controls include environmental protections, data de-identification and confidentialisation, access safe guards and output clearance. All output from DataLab sessions is cleared by an ABS officer before it is released. See About the DataLab for more information.

Please read the Responsible Use of ABS Microdata Guide before applying for access.

DataLab test files

A test file is available in the Downloads tab.

The test file mimics the structure of the detailed microdata in that it has the same data items and allowed values. This allows users to become familiar with the data structure and prepare code/programs before applying for, or beginning a DataLab session.

All data in the file is false, created through a randomisation process, therefore it cannot be used for analysis.
