The Census Data Enhancement (CDE) Project for migrants involves the linking of the ABS’ Census of Population and Housing dataset with the Department of Immigration and Citizenship’s (DIAC) Settlement Database (SDB). This project will enhance the statistical and research value of both datasets by enabling the settlement outcomes of migrants who have arrived in Australia since 1 January 2000 to be analysed in the context of their entry conditions (i.e. their visa type). Reliable and consistent information with respect to the labour force status, education, income, housing and caring arrangements will assist DIAC to assess their policies and programs so that they continue to deliver maximum benefits to the Australian economy and society as well as better inform other agencies and researchers.

An information paper assessing the quality of the linking is expected to made available on the ABS website early 2013.
