Archival Statistics

CAARA has been collecting statistics about the work of its members since 2000. The statistical database is a valuable source of comparative information for individual archives to make use of, and it provides data to support applications for funding to governments and other resource-allocating bodies.

In 2017, CAARA reviewed the statistics collected and made changes to acknowledge changes in archival practices. From 2017-18, data collected includes statistics around government recordkeeping activities; the volume of digital transfers made from government agencies; and, digital and online services provided to public clients. Commencing in 2024, CAARA is undertaking a further review of the statistics collected to ensure data collected remains relevant.

Broader Archival Surveys

In 2007 CAARA conducted a survey of the broader archive domain.

Report on Archives Survey 2007 Button Icon

For some years the former Australian Council of Archives (ACA) conducted an annual survey of all its members and some other institutions that have archives management programs. The ACA was a consultative body, formally established in July 1985, open to any organisation in Australia which collected and preserved archival materials, whether produced by itself or by other bodies or persons. The ACA was wound up in 2000.

The ACA had first conducted a survey of its members in 1989 covering the year ending 1988. A survey was conducted annually until the ACA was wound up.
