Your Census at work…

CDATA Online combines a range of information on Australian society from the 2006 Census, with web graphing and mapping software. CDATA Online provides instant access to valuable Census data topics such as age, education, housing, income, transport, religion, ethnicity, occupation and more. This free online product allows you to create your own tables, maps and graphs of Census characteristics for all ABS geographic areas.

Who would benefit from using CDATA Online?
CDATA Online would suit anyone interested in Census Data, so whether you work in government, small business, part of a community service organisation or in the education sector, CDATA Online would be a great asset.

Which geographic areas are available in CDATA Online?
You can access data for areas as small as a Collection District (approximately 225 households) or as large as an entire state or territory or all of Australia. CDATA Online allows you the freedom to select and combine areas that interest you by creating your own customised geographic areas. Data is available based on Place of Usual Residence and Location on Census Night.

Functionality – the real power of CDATA Online!
CDATA Online gives you the ability to cross tabulate Census data with your geographic areas of interest to produce a customised table which can also be viewed as a graph or thematic map.

CDATA Online allows you to begin by choosing from a list of predetermined tables which you can then customise to suit your own needs. You can add additional data items to your table and remove any existing data items from the table. You can even create your own Census data items by grouping characteristics to suit you own needs.

Free CDATA Online training will be available next year.
The first course will be held on the 26 February 2009. Make sure to keep an eye out for other upcoming courses.
