The data items included in 2016 ACTEID 2016 TableBuilder are grouped under broad headings and subheadings. A complete list of data items can be accessed from the Downloads tab.
Data items produced from a survey or Census that allow a respondent to fall into multiple categories are referred to as multiple response data items. For example, the 2016 Australian Census and Temporary Entrants Integrated Dataset (ACTEID) contains the Ancestry variable that allows respondents to report up to two ancestries on their Census form. Respondents do not have the option of ranking their answers to the ancestry question, so where a respondent reports two ancestries, those two ancestries have equal standing. The basis for allocating ancestries to the variables ANC1P and ANC2P is administrative only and is based on the order in which they are processed.
The two ancestry variables (ANC1P and ANC2P) have also been combined into one variable - Ancestry Multi Response (ANCP).
