TableBuilder is an online tool for creating tables, graphs and maps using ABS microdata. There are two TableBuilder systems: Census TableBuilder and TableBuilder for all other datasets.

The TableBuilder User Guide provides detailed information about both systems, including practical examples and video tutorials.

Features include:
  • select, customise, create and save tables and customised data
  • display counts, percentages and relative standard errors in your tables
  • calculate means, medians, quantiles and ranges for continuous variables
  • produce output as tables, graphs or maps (maps are currently available for Census TableBuilder datasets only)
  • download tables as CSV, Excel and SDMX files
  • download graphs or maps as PDF and KMZ files
  • create, save and share customised geographic areas and recodes with other users.


Census TableBuilder contains datasets from the Census of Population and Housing. There are two levels of access:
  • Census TableBuilder Basic is a free product designed for users who want to construct basic data tables. Census 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.
  • Census TableBuilder Pro is available for subscription. It is designed for advanced Census data users who want the freedom to create large and/or complex tables. It provides access to nearly all variables available in the Census data, supporting a large variety of cross-classified tables.

Supporting material for Census TableBuilder datasets:


There are many datasets available in TableBuilder available for subscription, listed on the Available microdata page. There are a wide range of topics including health, education, labour force, preschool education, migrants, motor vehicles, crime, disabilities, ageing and carers. Some datasets provide access to ABS survey results, while other datasets are administrative data collected by other organisations.


A list of available TableBuilder datasets as well as supporting material are linked on the Available microdata page. Each dataset links to a microdata publication, with the TableBuilder variables listed in a Data Item List on the Downloads tab.

See How to Apply to access free and subscribed TableBuilder datasets.
