The purpose of the website is to improve the visibility of key Australian transportation data collections as required under the Australian Transport Council’s Data Action Plan. Information on the website is provided by data custodians across government agencies, while the ABS provides administrative support.
Metadata statements on Transmet provide a description of the data including purpose, timing, data collection methods, use of standards and classifications, and access arrangements. The statements are based on the ABS Data Quality Framework which provides the standards for assessing and reporting on the quality of statistical information.
Transmet will be updated regularly with additional metadata for data sets linked with the implementation of national transportation policies.
