22/03/2016 - An ACLD test file has been included, to assist ABS Data Laboratory users.
        This test file will allow users to generate and test code prior to commencing a session in the ABS Data Laboratory. For more information, please see the ABS Data Laboratory Test File page.

12/02/2016 - The ACLD has been re-released in both TableBuilder and the on-site ABS Data Laboratory with a number of enhancements.
    In TableBuilder
        • three data items (Visa Type, Location of Visa Application, and Applicant Status) added from the Settlement Database that were made available in the Australian Census Migrants Integrated Dataset (ACMID) TableBuilder file;
        • additional Census variables, such as Socio-Economic Indexes for Areas (SEIFA) and dwelling location;
        • more finely disaggregated data items, for example, year of arrival in Australia in single years and religious affiliation at the three digit level;
        • refinements to the consistency flags; and
        • a revised weight (replacing the original weight) to better account for net overseas migration between the 2006 and 2011 Census Nights. Users who have analysed the ACLD prior to 12 February 2016 may notice changes to estimates produced with the revised weight. Estimates of population groups will be different with the total weighted population estimate being 19.5 million compared to 18.6 million on the old weight. Proportions are expected to only show small differences when previous tables are compared.

    In the ABS Data Laboratory
        • variable names changed to be more intuitive;
        • refinements to the consistency flags; and
        • a revised weight (replacing the original weight) to better account for net overseas migration between the 2006 and 2011 Census Nights.

    03/12/2015 - The ACLD file available for use through the on-site ABS Data Laboratory has been updated.
          This updated version includes three new data items relating to migrants that have been made available via the Settlement Database from the Department of Social Services.
          An update of the ACLD TableBuilder file and the ACLD ABS Data Laboratory file is planned for the near future.

    02/07/2015 - The ACLD is now available as a unit record file that can be accessed through the on-site ABS Data Laboratory network in ABS offices throughout Australia.

          This new ACLD Microdata Product features some revisions to the original dataset released in TableBuilder in December 2013:
          • categories of several data items have been expanded to match the level of disaggregation available in Census TableBuilder
          • additional Census data items (including Socio-Economic Indexes for Areas) have been added
          • weights have been revised to take better account of migration between 2006 and 2011

          To maintain consistency it is planned to release these updates to the ACLD TableBuilder file in the near future.
