ABS.Stat is our public facing data warehouse. If you’re after ABS data via API, start here. For the first time at GovHack data is available in JSON format via a REST API. Data is also available in XML via a REST API and a SOAP web service. Information on using the APIs is available in the Web Services User Guide.

You can use the ABS.Stat interface to view, explore and download data in Excel and CSV or generate API calls based your selection.

ABS.Stat provides access to dozens of high demand, statistics including Main Economic Indicators and new Census 2016 data. If you have any questions about the data or using the APIs please get in touch at #talk-stats in the GovHack Slack.

This is currently an open beta product and we recognise that there may be some issues. If you do spot a problem you can email us at abs.stat@abs.gov.au or get in touch on Slack.
