Census Education Quality Studies

The ABS Census Education Quality Studies are examining the quality of linked School Enrolments and 2011 Census of Population and Housing data. This work will provide insight into the feasibility of the Australian Longitudinal Learning Database (ALLD) concept.

School enrolment data have been received from four participating jurisdictions: Queensland, South Australia, Tasmania and the Northern Territory. The ABS is currently linking these datasets with the 2011 Census. A pilot linkage exercise was successfully run in June-July 2012 and the main linkage exercise has now commenced.

More information about the various Census Data Enhancement Projects across the ABS (including the Census Education Quality Studies) is available on the ABS website.
