OVERVIEW OF THE CONSULTATION PROCESS

In May 2012, the ABS, through the NSS website, released a consultation paper seeking public comment and feedback on the ESA for Australia initiative and preliminary list. In the six months following the release, there was a significant program of engagement and consultation led by ABS senior executives who targeted stakeholders across the public service at the Australian Government and state/territory levels, data custodians and key users, statistical governance forums and user groups, and members of the public.

The ABS received 97 submissions varying in nature from formal written submissions through to feedback obtained through meetings with stakeholders. A list of those who the ABS received feedback from is available in Appendix 2.
