It will soon be possible to conduct analysis of AWRS data using online analysis tools available from the Australian Data Archive (ADA).
The ADA Nesstar system allows users to perform analysis without having to access the unit records and load them into statistical software.
The Nesstar system allows users to run cross tabulations, correlations and linear regressions.
Data users are expected to acknowledge the Commission when making public any research material produced using data from the AWRS, including in any reports or publications, by use of the formulation of words that appear below (or any other formulation of words approved in writing by the Commission):
This [insert type of publication] uses confidentialised data from the Fair Work Commission Australian Workplace Relations Study 2014. The data collection for the AWRS was conducted by ORC International. The findings and views based on these data should not be attributed to the Fair Work Commission.
Users are required to register an account with the ADA (at no cost) to gain access to the AWRS data via the Nesstar data analysis system.
Data from the Australian Workplace Industrial Relations Survey (AWIRS), 1989–1990 is also available via the ADA website. Users are required to register an account with the ADA to gain access to the archived AWIRS data.
