The Migrant Data Matrices provide users with links to data on migrants from a range of ABS products. Data include a broad selection of demographic, geographic, socio-economic and survey specific items. The data items included are not exhaustive but rather provide a selection of the data available from a collection. Each data cube includes a link to the main features and explanatory notes of the source product or collection.

In this fourth edition, a number of innovations have been implemented to streamline the volume of content and to make it easier for users to navigate to source data within the product. These include:

  • A streamlined 'Downloads' page. The cubes listed here, now represent the latest migrant data available on the topic. Users will still be able to access previously released data cubes via the 'Cumulative list'.
  • A new 'Cumulative list of data cubes'. This page provides an alphabetically grouped list of links to all data cubes (the latest as well as those previously released) that are available in this product. A link is located in the left had navigator pane, making it easier to navigate to this page.
  • More streamlined topic pages that link directly to the data cubes and presents the 'Main Features for Source Product' information in a table format.

The ABS products included will change over time as more survey data are released or become available. In most cases the data presented will be current, however, it is recommended that users check for more recent releases.


As estimates have been rounded, discrepancies may occur between sums of the component items and totals.
