TABLEBUILDER LAUNCHED 28 August 2009
Census TableBuilder (cat. no. 2065.0) is an online tool which allows users to create their own custom tables of Census data including person, family and dwelling classifications in the one table for all ABS geographic areas. All person, family and dwelling data are available by place of enumeration (location on Census night), with person data also available by place of usual residence and place of work. Offering a high degree of freedom users decide to count either persons, families or dwellings, how to structure the data and which variables to include. Almost all variables from the 2006 Census Dictionary including age, education, housing, income, transport, religion, ethnicity, occupation, family composition, are available plus some additional popular requests. Unlike CDATA Online, TableBuilder is not topic based so you will be able to add any combination of variables to your table.
TableBuilder's large table function makes creating tables with up to 5 million cells of Census data a breeze! Small tables are available immediately, while larger tables are submitted for processing, allowing you to create additional tables while your large table is being prepared.
TableBuilder completes the suite of products from the 2006 Census. It is available free to end users under the ABS/Universities Australia Agreement or as a charged subscription service to individuals. It is aimed at clients with a high level of experience in Census data and concepts. Clients are required to complete an application and undertaking regarding their obligations in using the product before access can be granted. Licences are issued to individuals and the price is $1,655.
