  • More ABS migrant and ethnicity data available in one easy location - The second edition of the Migrant Data Matrices (cat. no 3415.0) was released on 19 January 2009. It provides users with links to migrant and ethnicity data from a range of ABS products. The data include a broad selection of demographic, geographic, socioeconomic and survey specific items which are conveniently located under nine topic groups: Population Characteristics; Labour; Family and Community; Health; Education and Training; Housing; Personal and Household Finances; Culture and Leisure and Crime and Justice. This release of the Migrant Data Matrices incorporates all 18 data cubes from the first release plus 20 data cubes of more recently released data.
  • Video Help is on its way - Keep an eye out for a soon to be released new video which will assist you in navigating through the Migrant Data Matrices. A short instructional video will introduce you to the main features of the Matrices and demonstrate how to quickly find data relating to migrants and ethnicity. It will show you how to find topics and provides examples of pointing and clicking to the items of interest within data cubes.
