Contents >> Chapter 5: Output >> GFS output data requests

5.37. Users of ABS government finance statistics are encouraged to follow the steps below when framing requests for GFS output data:

  • select the output sector for which data are required, e.g. NSW State general government sector;
  • select the ETF category required (see appendix 3),
  • select any non-ETF classification (e.g. GPC) categories required, again referring to appendix 3; and,
  • send the data request to the ABS contact officer.

5.38. On receipt of such requests, the ABS usually reconfirms the client requirements, especially where they are large and involved. A charge is made to cover the costs of extracting data to meet users’ requests. For complex requests, the client must accept the quote for the ABS work before it proceeds.

5.39. GFS output data requests can be directed to the Public Finance Section in Canberra on telephone (02) 6252 7589. As well, inquiries can be directed by mail to Client Services, ABS, PO Box 10, Belconnen, ACT 2616 or by email to client.services@abs.gov.au.
