What is it?

TableBuilder Pro is the ultimate Census data analysis tool. It provides the full range of Census variables and supports a wide range of cross tabulations.

It allows users to extract and manipulate an unlimited number of Census tables and create graphs and thematic maps of Census data. It also has more sophisticated features which allow the creation of recodes and custom geographies that can be shared with other licensed users.

Users have access to ALL topics including age, education, housing, income, transport, religion, ethnicity, occupation and more, from small areas such as Statistical Area Level 1 (SA1) to the whole of Australia.

TableBuilder Pro is a charged product. For information about licence pricing, see Microdata prices.
