Data source

Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) – Census 2016 – by place of work

Please note: The 2016 Census used a new methodology to “impute” a work location to people who didn’t state their workplace address. As a result, 2016 and 2011 place of work data are not normally comparable. To allow comparison between 2011 and 2016, .id has sourced a 2011 dataset from the ABS which was experimentally imputed using the same methodology. Furneaux Island Group currently subscribe to the “LITE” version of economy.id, which does not feature this extended dataset. In order to directly compare worker numbers between 2011 and 2016, it is recommended that Furneaux Island Group subscribe to the FULL version of economy.id.
