The program has specific responsibilities for supporting the statistical collection process. It provides advice on survey design and methods, and on data quality, through all stages of the survey cycle; and undertakes research on statistical methods to improve the efficiency and accuracy of ABS work. The program provides leadership in developing the future methodological infrastructure of the ABS.
The program also manages the Australian Government Statistical Clearing House, to minimise the load on businesses and to improve the quality of business survey outputs.
Externally, in conjunction with Analytical Services, the program produces and publishes a series of Methodology Advisory Committee Papers (ABS cat. nos. 1352.0.55.001-1322.214.171.124), which present the results of current research or analysis, often of an experimental nature, to facilitate expert discussion and comment. In addition, guidelines on current best practices of statistical methodology are also produced (ABS cat. no. 1500.0).
The Statistical Clearing House produces an annual report of all surveys directed to businesses conducted by Commonwealth agencies during each fiscal year, and promulgates and promotes survey best practices in agencies conducting business surveys.
