I need to add an additional reference to my Bibtex file manually. The format of the reference as stated by the Australian Bureau of Statistics is

Australian Bureau of Statistics 2011, Dwelling Characteristics (2011), TableBuilder. Findings based on use of ABS TableBuilder data.

(Link: http://www.abs.gov.au/ausstats/abs@.nsf/web+pages/Citing+ABS+Sources#TableBuilder)

I tried to add this using the below entry

author = {{Australian Bureau of Statistics}},
title = {Dwelling Characteristics (2011)},
publisher= {{TableBuilder. Findings based on use of ABS TableBuilder data}},
year = {2011}

But I'm unable to get this in the Pdf. Any help is much appreciated. Thanks!

  • Your title says BibTeX but you tagged your question with Biblatex. Are you using the former or the latter? Welcome to TeX.SE! – Troy Jun 2 '17 at 7:06

  • @Troy Thanks. Its the reference file with .bib extension to generate my Latex document bibliography. I'm a newbie. So not sure which tag I should use – Jessie Jun 2 '17 at 7:13

    Do you have a \cite{ABS2011} in your LaTeX somewhere? If not, you could put \nocite{ABS2011} somewhere (it will include the reference to your bibliography without having to cite it somewhere). – Tiuri Jun 2 '17 at 8:07

If you want to have some specific reference in your document, but don't cite it anywhere in your text, you use the \nocite macro somewhere in your document. It will add the specific reference to the bibliography without creating a citation.

Full code example:


author = {Australian Bureau of Statistics},
title = {Dwelling Characteristics},
note = {TableBuilder. Findings based on use of ABS TableBuilder data},
year = {2011}
