INFORMATION DEVELOPMENT PLAN FOR CHILDREN AND YOUTH

The NCYSU is currently undertaking work to produce an Information Development Plan for children and youth statistics. The overall purpose of the plan will be to improve the quality and range of information available on the populations of children and youth.

The ABS will be working closely with a range of key stakeholders in formulating the plan. It will be a tool for stakeholders to use in developing a more comprehensive and consistent information set. The plan will act to increase cooperation, coordination and communication between relevant agencies. It will also be important in terms of developing and promulgating standards relating to children and youth and will help to promote a wider shared understanding and commitment to statistical priorities for this population group.

Importantly, the plan will outline the information gaps, overlaps and deficiencies in existing information sets relating to children and youth and, accordingly, enable the development of an agreed set of priorities for ABS and stakeholders to improve relevant children and youth statistics. In addition, it is hoped that there will be an improvement in the use and capacity of existing information through mechanisms such as data linkage and better sharing and access to information.

The Information Development Plan is expected to be available by the end of 2004. For more information contact David Povah on 08 9360 5383 (david.povah@abs.gov.au).
