The HILDA (Household, Income and Labour Dynamics in Australia) Survey is a household based panel study. It provides insight into economic circumstances over time and the persistence of income disadvantage for individual households.
The survey began in 2001 and collects information regarding economic and personal well-being, labour market and family dynamics. For more information about the HILDA Survey, see HILDA survey.
Access to the HILDA datasets is only available to current UNSW academic staff and postgraduate researchers. For more information on how to register for HILDA, see NCLD Dataverse.

Key ABS Publications
The ABS collects data from the Australian population every 5 years through the National Census. The Census is the largest survey the ABS conducts, and one of the most important. It provides the basis for official population estimates for Australia, state, territory and local government areas.
Microdata consists of Confidentialised Unit Record Files (CURFs) from key ABS surveys. The unit level for a CURF may be a household, an income unit or a family. The datasets have been confidentialised. CURF microdata is the most detailed level of ABS statistical data available.
