Download our new 2006, 2008, 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2013 CensusAtSchool Data Prepared Samples in printer-friendly Excel files. This range of samples is ideal for use when your students don’t have access to the Internet as you can print copies for your students or upload them onto your school’s Intranet. We add new samples periodically but you can request samples to be added by emailing

Subsets of Data Samples have themes such as numerical, categorical and environmental data. Each of the files has 40 pages and contains data from a random sample of 40 students. We’ve also removed the outliers and errors from these samples.

Full Data Samples
contain samples of categories such as school year levels, sex, and state or territory. We’ve also included International CensusAtSchool samples and a class set of random samples so you can print a different data sample for each of your students. However, we haven’t removed any outliers or obvious errors from these samples.
