USING THE DATALAB
The DataLab allows interactive (real time) access to microdata files from the National Health Survey 2017-18, through a portal to a secure ABS environment. The level of detail provided within the DataLab exceeds that of the Basic CURF and provides researchers greater access to the data.
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 and R 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.
For more information about the DataLab, please see the About the DataLab page on the ABS website.
The Expanded CURF and the use of the Remote Access Data Laboratory (RADL) have been discontinued for this collection. Users are encouraged to consider the DataLab as an improved mechanism to access detailed microdata.
