The ABS has a continuing commitment to develop the quality of official statistical information and working together with a range of government agencies to deliver the statistics required by Australians. A major activity for the coming year is the compilation of the Ageing Information Development Plan (IDP).

In June 2005, several papers were reviewed at the National Ageing Statistics Unit Advisory Group meeting. As a result of these discussions, an Ageing IDP Consultation Paper has being developed outlining the key issues in ageing and identifying broad information priorities. This document will be used to drive discussion during the consultation phase on priorities for information development. The document will outline strategies and programs currently underway in Australia and the existing data sources available to meet those strategies. The consultation process will assist the ABS in consolidating the information requirements for ageing in the future, including the identification of data gaps. The draft set of priorities identified in this paper will be added to or be refined during the consultation phase.

In late 2005/early 2006, a series of workshops in all states and territories is planned. The purpose of each of the consultation sessions is to gather information so that a set of priorities and actions can be developed.

It is acknowledged that not all stakeholders will be able to attend the consultation sessions. Stakeholders will be encouraged to provide feedback through direct submissions to the ABS.

For further information on the consultation process please contact Mae Mulheran.
