DATA INTEGRATION @ THE NMSU
The NMSU has now completed the Gold Standard linking (with names and addresses) of the SDB and Census files. In accordance with ABS policy the names and addresses were deleted prior to the shutdown of the 2011 Census Data Processing Centre on 7 December 2012. Bronze Standard linking is currently underway (without names and addresses), using variables such as age, sex, geographic variables, country of birth and year of arrival. The Gold Standard linked file serves only as a bench mark and is used to assess the quality of the Bronze Standard linking.
NMSU are now focussing on the output side of the project. An information paper assessing the quality of the linking is expected to available on the ABS website in July 2013. It is also planned that a publication and associated data cubes from the Bronze Standard linked file will be published at the beginning of August 2013.
The ABS is also linking a 5% sample of the 2011 Census data to the 2006 Census data using Bronze Standard 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 Bronze Standard 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 Citizenship (DIAC) Settlement Database (SDB) can be integrated with Personal Income Tax (PIT) data from the Australian Taxation Office (ATO) using Gold Standard probabilistic methods. It has been a long haul to get this project rolling (it was first conceptualised back in 2006) so we are really pleased that we are now all set to commence this phase of the project. The linking process is set to begin in the next month, with a research paper scheduled for release via the ABS website later this year.
These documents will be presented in a new window.
