Over 2,000 data sets from Australian and non-Australian Studies. Data available for research includes opinion polls, social attitude surveys, electoral studies, education, youth studies, social welfare and social attitudes. Access information is available from the ADA website.
Australian Data Archive (ADA) is a consortium of leading national Australian universities, managed by the Australian National University (ANU). It was formerly known as ASSDA (Australian Social Science Data Archive). ASSDA was set up in 1981 to collect and preserve computer-readable social, political and economic data relating and to make the data available for further analysis.
The data is useful for longitudinal and comparative studies and covers a wide range of research areas. The datasets include both Australian and non-Australian studies. Data is continuously added to ADA and includes current and historical datasets.
