Providing information and data is an important part of the ACNC's role. In addition to information about charities on the Charity Register, the information about the charity sector in the Charities Report, and ACNC datasets at data.gov.au, we want to provide information and data about the ACNC's services.

Here we present data that provides insights into important elements of our work providing a website with necessary and useful information and resources for charities and the public.

ACNC Charity Register searches

The following graphs show the use of the ACNC Charity Register.

The graphs measure 'unique pageviews' of Charity Register results. This refers to the number of times that users visited a Charity Register page. It is not a reflection of the unique users of the Charity Register; rather, it shows the unique views of the content contained in the Charity Register.

Note: In December 2021, our website underwent an upgrade which altered the way traffic to our website was being tracked. The tracking was corrected for February 2022. Consequently, we have had to provide estimates of the Charity Register searches for December 2021 and January 2022. These estimates are based on data from past usage.

ACNC website views

The ACNC website contains extensive information and resources for charities and the public and is viewed millions of times a year. The data here provides an insight into the use of the ACNC website and, importantly, the Charity Register with its wealth of information about Australia's registered charities.

The following graphs show the use of the ACNC website over the past three years. It includes the use of the website so far in 2021.

The graphs measure 'unique pageviews'. This means a session during which a page of the website was viewed by a user at least once. It is not a reflection of the number of unique users of the website; rather, it shows the number of unique views of the website's content.

Note: In December 2021, our website underwent an upgrade which altered the way traffic to our website was being tracked. The tracking was corrected for February 2022. Consequently, we have had to provide estimations of the traffic to the website for December 2021 and January 2022. These estimations are based on data from past usage.
