Historical Census Data
The Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) has entered into an agreement with the Australian Social Science Data Archive to provide historical census data to ASSDA for storage and distribution. Historical census data here refers to all standard ABS data tables from the 1966 and later censuses which do not relate to the current census or to the census immediately prior to the current census. At this point in time, the data that can be distributed under the agreement covers the data tables from the 1966, 1971, 1976, 1981, 1986 and 1991 censuses. To access these data, please Contact ASSDA.
