This guide provides information about the release of microdata from the 2011–12 Patient Experiences in Australia Survey (PEx) for tabulation using the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) TableBuilder (TB).
Microdata are the most detailed information available from a survey and are generally the responses to individual questions on the questionnaire or data derived from two or more questions. They are released with the approval of the Australian Statistician.
This guide should be used as a reference document when accessing the microdata as it explains the data content, technical details and the conditions of use.
Microdata for the PEx Survey are available through the TableBuilder
product - an online tool for creating tables and graphs that can be accessed from the ABS website.
Further information about TB and about microdata in general is available from the Microdata Entry Page
on the ABS website.
This TB product is the only microdata release for the 2011–12 PEx Survey. For summary information on the survey, please see Patient Experiences in Australia: Summary of Findings, 2011–12
(cat. no. 4839.0).
