Starting this thread off with a plug for the worked example for getting data from the ABS Data API - Explore a dataset and construct a data request

This is a great walkthrough of how to explore all the dataset available in the ABS Data API and construct an API request for the data you are interested in.

The example explains how to find out the codes used to construct your data request and what order the codes need to be in. It also explains some of the terminology of SDMX, Statistical Data and Metadata Exchange, the information model used in the ABS Data API.
