Australian Bureau of Statistics Labour Force API

This RESTful API provides Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) labour force data such as employment statistics by region, sex, age groups, and labour utilisation using original, seasonally adjusted and trend markers since 1978.

It connects to an existing ABS API and improves the usability of the information queried from ABS by transforming the SDMX formatted data into a JSON format. This allows developers to consume ABS data easily by using a standard format without requiring time-consuming reformatting and transformation of the data received.

Version 1.0.0

An API key will be issued if you wish to explore and understand the way this API operates.

Access for this API is available on request to the DPC API Team through the Developer.Vic website.
