When analysing these statistics, care needs to be taken as time periods, definitions, methodologies, scope, and coverage can differ across collections.

Care should be taken when interpreting cells with small numbers or zeros.

Made possible by the Digital Atlas of Australia
The Digital Atlas of Australia is an Australian Government initiative being led by Geoscience Australia. It will bring together trusted datasets from across government in an interactive, secure, and easy-to-use geospatial platform. The Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) is working in partnership with Geoscience Australia to establish a set of web services to make ABS data available in the Digital Atlas.

The Digital Atlas of Australia beta will be available by mid-2023.
