Using the DataLab
The DataLab provides an analysis solution for users to access the MADIP Modular Product and Basic Longitudinal Extracts. The DataLab environment contains recent versions of SPSS, Stata, SAS, R and Python analytical software. Robust controls have been implemented in the DataLab to prevent the identification of individuals and organisations. These controls include environmental protections, removal of direct identifiers from and confidentialisation of the microdata, access safe guards and output clearance. All outputs from DataLab sessions are cleared by an ABS officer before release.
More information about the DataLab can be found on the About the DataLab page. To apply for access to a MADIP microdata product in the DataLab, contact firstname.lastname@example.org. Please read the Responsible Use of ABS Microdata, User Guide (cat. no. 1406.0.55.003) before applying for access to the Basic Longitudinal Extracts or Modular Product.
