APPENDIX 1: ABS STATISTICAL WORK PROGRAM BY COMPONENT

Elements of the ABS statistical work program are classified into four components. These are used to assist with prioritisation. This work was informed by the earlier development of the list of Essential Statistical Assets for Australia (cat. no. 1395.0), in consultation with a wide range of stakeholders.

Refer to tables below for the ABS work program classified into four components. A number of these programs and outputs are making significant use of data integration to reduce provider burden or enhance the information available.
