USING THE DATALAB
The DataLab allows interactive (real time) access to microdata files. Detailed microdata are de-identified and confidentialised appropriately within the context of the other security features of the DataLab. The security features allow users access to more complete and detailed data than is available on the CURF. Sophisticated analysis can be conducted with detailed microdata files. All unit record data remains in the DataLab environment. All outputs are checked by the ABS before being provided to the researcher. The DataLab can be accessed on-site at ABS offices or as part of the virtual DataLab trial program.
