The Australian Workplace Relations Study (AWRS) Data Centre has been established to enable users to access and interact with AWRS data.
AWRS data is being made available for analysis via multiple platforms that are designed to cater for a range of data analysis needs and capabilities. These platforms can be accessed via the Contents navigation to the right of the screen. The platforms for access include:
- Online analysis via Tableau dashboards
- Online analysis via the Australian Data Archive
- AWRS confidentialised unit record files
There are no explicit restrictions on the types of analysis that can be performed using AWRS data; however, please note that the AWRS is intended to be a resource for producing analysis of workplace relations matters that are not canvassed by other national surveys. AWRS data should not be a substitute for Australian Bureau of Statistics catalogues that provide more robust estimates of the employer and employee populations in Australia. Such catalogues include:
Data analysis is also available from the AWRS First Findings Report, published in January 2015 and Research report 1/2015 – Award reliance and business size: a data profile using the Australian Workplace Relations Study, published in February 2015. Research papers presented at the AWRS Conference, to be held 25-26 June 2015, will also be published on the Commission’s website as they are finalised by the authors.
The AWRS technical notes are available as a general resource for information about the AWRS, including:
