ABS Forward Work Program

The Forward Work Program (FWP) provides the schedule of statistical releases over the next four years. This program does not include experimental estimates and research papers. In addition to the official releases listed in this program, the ABS generates a significant number of customised data products to meet the needs of specific clients.

This program was developed through extensive consultation with government, key stakeholders including users of statistics, other government entities and a range of non-government organisations such as community groups and industry bodies.

The ABS reviews and makes changes to the FWP to ensure it continues to appropriately measure the Australian economy, environment, and society. Program changes announced in April 2021 have been reflected.

The statistical work program is classified into three tiers to assist with prioritising resources. This tiering was developed in consultation with a wide range of stakeholders.

Tier 1Statistics that are the foundation work of a national statistical organisation.
Tier 2Important areas of statistics where there is a significant government outlay or where there is a significant public policy interest.
Tier 3Other important statistical work that is currently undertaken to meet identified user requirements.

1 Commencing in September 2021, the main Weekly Payroll Jobs and Wages (COVID-19) release frequency was revised from fortnightly to monthly. A monthly frequency allows for richer content and better alignment with other relevant releases.

2 An interim release between monthly Weekly Payroll Jobs and Wages (COVID-19) releases was introduced in September 2021 to provide additional state and territory labour market insights through late 2021. As the nature of the COVID-19 pandemic changes, the ABS will review this frequency to ensure the release best meets information needs.

3 Re-based every five years following the Census of Population and Housing.

4 Fieldwork will be paused in 2021-22 to undertake a review of collection requirements.

5 Final release July 2021.

6 An extra cycle of the Survey of Income and Housing will be run in 2021–22, with results to be published in 2022–23, to help measure the impact of COVID-19 on Australian households.

7 Previously an annual collection, the Time Use Survey is released on a two-yearly basis for the life of this Plan (2021-22 to 2024-25). The ongoing frequency of this collection is currently under review.

8 The Post Census Review was previously known as the Post Enumeration Survey.
