To achieve our purpose, the ABS is focusing on three strategic priorities to meet Australia’s contemporary and emerging statistical needs over the coming years:

    1. Providing high quality statistics
    2. Transforming the ABS for the future
    3. Delivering new statistical solutions to maximise the value of public data.

These priorities shape the work of the ABS and drive our business objectives and activities as outlined at the beginning of this Plan under ‘The Plan at a Glance’.

Strategic Priority 1 goes to our core function of delivering relevant, trusted, objective statistics that meet the diverse needs of the Australian community, governments and business.

Strategic Priority 2, considered in more detail in Section 3, is directed at transforming our capabilities to reduce the risk of system failure, increasing efficiency and improving access to data, enhancing our culture and building staff capability.

Strategic Priority 3 focuses on partnering with our stakeholders to develop new statistical solutions, with particular focus on data integration and modelling techniques, and exploring opportunities for improved statistics and/or reducing respondent burden through greater use of administrative data and integrated data.
