    Australian Bureau of Statistics

    The Registry provides the Australian Bureau of Statistics with birth, death and marriage registration data each month.

    While we do not typically undertake ad hoc statistical analysis, we receive requests from organisations that require a breakdown of Registry data e.g. the number of marriages registered in Western Sydney.
