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.

What's new

METEOR was updated and relaunched in May 2022. METEOR’s new features include a modern, user-friendly interface, and greatly improved search functionality. Our FAQs page is a great place to start if you're feeling a bit lost.

We have a new suite of training modules for general users, developers, registrars and workgroup managers. The following education modules are available now:

General User Training

We hope you enjoy the new environment.
