Dear Ms Cameron,

Thank you for your correspondence to the ABS.

I note that your request does not meet the requirements of a valid request
for documents under section 15 of the Freedom of Information Act 1982 Act 
as it requests access to information, rather than documents. In order for
this request to be processed, you will have to revise the request to
highlight which document/s you seek access to.

Please note that the ABS provides a free information referral service,
which can help you locate data, rather than documents. You may find that
this service would better meet your needs in this instance. The details
are at the following link:
