ABS.Stat datasets: State and territory level data has been published in a series of ABS.Stat datasets, replacing the release of data cubes (Excel files). These datasets include births registered since 1975. ABS.Stat is an interactive free online tool that presents data in a searchable, flexible and dynamic way. Data at the sub-state level and by country of birth is published as data cubes.

Calculations as shown in the commentary sections of this publication are based on unrounded figures. Calculations undertaken by data users using rounded figures may differ from those published. Where figures have been rounded in tables, discrepancies may occur between sums of component items and totals.
Every effort is made to minimise error by working closely with data providers, including supporting the careful design of forms, training of processing staff, and efficient data processing procedures.
The ABS values the efforts of the Registries of Births, Deaths and Marriages to improve the data quality, coverage and timeliness of birth registration information, processes and systems.
Where necessary, tables have had small values suppressed or randomised to protect confidentiality. As a result, sums of components may not add exactly to totals. These very minor adjustments allow for a greater amount of detailed data to be released, and as they are small, do not affect the utility of the data.
