Australian Bureau of Statistics Connector

Version 3

 

Intro

Use the Australian Bureau of Statistics connector to pull public Australian population data for a variety of categories, such as quarterly population estimates, aboriginal population projections, and more.  

You connect to your Australian Bureau of Statistics account in the Data Center. This topic discusses the fields and menus that are specific to the Australian Bureau of Statistics connector user interface. General information for adding DataSets, setting update schedules, and editing DataSet information is discussed in Adding a DataSet Using a Data Connector.

Prerequisites
