DATA INTEGRATION @ THE NMSU
The NMSU has completed the linking of the SDB and Census files. NMSU are now focussing on the output side of the project. The 'Research Paper: Assessing the Quality of Linking Migrant Settlement Records to 2011 Census Data' (cat no. 1351.0.55.043) was released on the ABS website on 19 August 2013 and an electronic publication 'Understanding Migrant Outcomes - Enhancing the Value of Census Data, Australia, 2011' (cat. no. 3417.0) was released on 19 September 2013. It is proposed that a series of associated State level data will be published by the NMSU towards the end of 2013.
The ABS is also linking a 5% sample of the 2011 Census data to the 2006 Census data using probabilistic linking to create a 5% Statistical Longitudinal Census Dataset (SLCD). NMSU will then be able to enhance the SLCD with information from the Migrants CDE Project linked dataset. At this stage we anticipate output from this longitudinal linkage to be available early 2014, however we will keep you updated about our progress in future newsletters.
Migrant Personal Income Tax (PIT) Data Integration (DI) project - Feasibility phase
The Migrant PIT DI project seeks to establish if an extract of the Department of Immigration and Border Protection (DIBP) Settlement Database (SDB) can be integrated with Personal Income Tax (PIT) data from the Australian Taxation Office (ATO). The linking process for the feasibility phase has been completed and analysis is being conducted on the linked file. A research paper is scheduled for release via the ABS website later this year.
These documents will be presented in a new window.
