Australian Census Longitudinal Dataset (ACLD)
ACLD uses data from the Census of Population and Housing to build a longitudinal picture of Australian society. The first release of ACLD was based on a random 5% sample from the 2006 Census, brought together with records from the 2011 Census using probabilistic linking methods. It is envisaged that the 2016 Census and subsequent Censuses will be added in the future, as well as administrative datasets.
