Welcome to CensusAtSchool

New Australian Data Added!

New data from the Australian CensusAtSchool Project has been added to the Random Data Selector (RDS) and DataTool (DT). This is data from the 2013 (phase 6) Australian CensusAtSchool questionnaire, submitted by Australian school children;

  • Over 23,000 records.
  • Questionnaire remains almost unchanged from 2012 providing an opportunity for comparisons by year.
  • The questionnaire contains many core questions allowing international comparison (compare your class data).

You may download a sample of 200 using the RDS or use the DataTool to look at a sample in more detail online.

You can access the RDS here. The DataTool can be accessed here (Adobe Flash is needed for the DataTool).
