jimboh2k writes “The Australian Bureau of Statistics will use the 2011
Census of Population and Housing as a [0]dry run for XML-based open
source standards DDI and SDMX in a bid to make for easier
machine-to-machine data, allowing users to better search for and access
census datasets. The census will become the first time the open standards
are used by an Australian Federal Government agency.”
