Welcome to METEOR

The Australian Institute of Health and Welfare’s Metadata Online Registry

METEOR is the registry for Australian metadata standards for statistics and information in areas such as health, housing and homelessness, aged care, Indigenous, disability, children, families and youth.

Please note that METEOR does not contain any data, reports or statistical information. If you are looking for data, please visit the AIHW Data Collections.

If you already have a METEOR account, you will need to create a new account in METEOR the first time you log in to the new system.

What's new

Welcome to the new METEOR! METEOR’s new features include an updated modern, user-friendly interface, and greatly improved search functionality. All the records from legacy METEOR are still here, too. The whole site has been rewritten and redesigned, so you will find a lot of changes. If you're feeling lost, check out our new FAQs page.

To help you get acquainted with new METEOR, we are developing a new suite of training modules for general users, developers, registrars and workgroup managers. The following beta draft education modules are available now:

General User Training
Developer Training
Registrar and Work Group Manager Training

We hope you enjoy the new environment.
