Australian Colonial Census Statistics Online

The Historical Census and Colonial Data Archive (HCCDA) website is now available.

HCCDA is a searchable archive of Australian Colonial census publications and reports.

The archive has sourced microfiche versions of the census publications from the ABS and converted them to both digital images and searchable XML markup.

The HCCDA archive documents were originally published in the former colonies of NSW, Victoria, Queensland, South Australia, Tasmania and Western Australia and relate to censuses of those colonies ranging from 1833 to 1901.
HCCDA is a sub-archive of the Australian Social Science Data Archive (ASSDA).
The ABS Historical Publications page lists recently digitised ABS publications.
