Historical Publications: 1901-1993
Many publications released by the Australian Bureau of Statistics, and its predecessor the Commonwealth Bureau of Census and Statistics from 1901 - 1993 have been digitised and are available online. The remaining titles are available in print or microfiche format from the National Library of Australia, State libraries and many Australian university libraries.
Copies or loans of publications can be obtained via interlibrary loan or document delivery request (check Libraries Australia to see which libraries have holdings).
The ABS Library in Canberra also holds a deposit collection of all ABS publications which can be accessed by appointment. Contact the ABS National Information and Referral Service for further information.
Historical data can also be provided on request by ABS Information Consultancy Services.
