  4. Click on Upload files and select the file you wish to upload.
  5. Someone from the Seer team will be in touch within 2 business days to confirm whether your data structure is supported and can be automatically ingested.


Main data types supported

  1. Aggregate data
    1. You can think of aggregate data as data that represents a large sample size - eg. census data around "Average number of hours worked" by the population residing in Wollongong, NSW.
  2. Unit record data
    1. This data type is commonly used in the form of survey results, where each record represents a single person or response. The Seer platform Explore tool automatically aggregates this data based on the filters you select.
