Data Quality Online has been developed by the Australian Bureau of Statistics as an National Statistical Service initiative to help you find information and guidance on the quality management of data.

This website expands upon the ABS Data Quality Framework to provide more information on the uses of the framework to assist in make quality informed decisions.

The ABS Data Quality Framework can be used to:

  • Define a data need
  • Declare quality of your own, or another organisation's data item or collection of data items (quality statements)
  • Compare your data need with available data (identification of data gaps)
  • Design a collection (this may be a result of the identification of data gaps)
