Welcome to the Statistical Clearing House
Role of the Statistical Clearing House (SCH)
The SCH was established by the Prime Minister in 1997 within the Australian Bureau of Statistics to be the central clearance point for business surveys that are run, funded, or conducted on behalf of the Australian Government. We help minimise the burden of Australian Government surveys on businesses by reducing survey duplication and ensuring that proposed business survey methods and questionnaire designs are fit for purpose.
SCH Online Tool
All Australian Government surveys that intend to contact businesses for the purpose of conducting a survey should contact the SCH to determine whether a review is required.
To initiate an SCH review, please use the SCH Online Tool.
