COLLECTION OF DATA BY JURISDICTIONS
Data collected by jurisdictions for the National ECEC Collection is subject to state and territory legislation, which applies to the collection and on-providing of data to the ABS. The federal Privacy Act does not regulate state or territory agencies, except for the Australian Capital Territory. The remaining states and territories operate under their own privacy requirements, which are based on the National Privacy Principles.
All jurisdictions guarantee that relevant state and territory legislation requirements have been acknowledged and addressed to ensure that correct procedures and protocols are followed in collecting unit record information.
