Census TableBuilder is an online self-help tool which enables users to create tables, graphs and maps of Census data. It is designed to allow users to produce data specific to their needs.

The product allows you to:

  • construct tables of Census data for a wide range of geographical areas
  • view and export data as graphs and thematic maps in a variety of formats
  • create and save customised geographic areas and data items (recodes).

Census TableBuilder Guest enables users to view the Census TableBuilder Basic databases without registering. Guest users are not able to save tables and recodes or submit large tables.

Census TableBuilder Basic is designed for clients who want to construct basic data tables. TableBuilder Basic provides access to most Census data in a range of topic based datasets that include classifications such as age, education, housing, income, transport, religion, ethnicity and occupation. Users are required to register with an email address, but the product is free of charge. Tables can be saved.

Census TableBuilder Pro is a charged product designed for advanced Census data users who want the freedom to create large or complex tables. Census TableBuilder Pro provides access to nearly all variables available in the Census data, supporting a large variety of cross-classified tables. To register for Census TableBuilder Basic or Pro view How to apply for microdata.
