Remote Access Data LabLog in
SAS has been removed from RADL as the licence version that RADL required is no longer available. Users can either use SPSS or Stata in the RADL, or apply for access to the DataLab, where a range of analytical languages including SAS are available.
Expanded CURFs are available in RADL. Available Microdata shows which CURFs are available in Basic and Expanded formats, as well as TableBuilder and Detailed Microdata. See How to apply and Microdata prices.
FUTURE RADL DECOMMISSIONING
The RADL system, released in 2003, has ageing technology and software that no longer provide users with the expected level of analytical functionality. Over the last few years, the ABS has been developing and trialling virtual capability for the DataLab, the replacement for RADL. The DataLab provides users with up to date versions of analytical languages, including SAS, SPSS, Stata and R in a flexible, easy to use virtual and on-site environment.
It is expected that the RADL system will be decommissioned by the end of 2018. Users may continue to use RADL for the rest of this year. You do not need to take any action now, as RADL users are progressively being contacted with DataLab onboarding information.
