Confidentiality

Census TableBuilder Pro: To maintain the confidentiality of respondents and to ensure the output of quality data, some system restrictions have been implemented. These restrictions prevent the cross-tabulation of certain variables. See Census of Population and Housing: Community Profile, DataPack and TableBuilder Templates, Australia, 2016.

You need to agree to Conditions of use when using TableBuilder. The ABS may impose a limit on the maximum number of tables per user.
