Annual Reports

      The Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) Annual Report provides Members of Parliament, Senators, and the public with a detailed description of the ABS' activities during the preceding year, accounting for its use of public resources and performance against planned outcomes.

      In 2019, the Australian Government launched a new Transparency Portal (the Portal). From 2020, the ABS will use the Transparency Portal as the sole location for its Annual Report.

      You can find the 2019-20 ABS Annual Report on the Publications page of the Portal. ABS Annual Reports for 2017-18 and 2018-19 are also located on the Portal.

      Historical Annual Reports (i.e. 2016-17 and earlier) are still available on the ABS website through the 'Past Releases' tab located on the landing page for the ABS Annual Report.
