HOW WILL THE INITIATIVE SUPPORT THE OBJECTIVES?

Information obtained from the ESA for Australia initiative is expected to contribute to governments’ investment decision-making processes to improve the overall quality of Australia’s official statistical assets, enhance the utilisation of these assets and allow for more effective integration and comparability thereby increasing the value of Australia’s statistical system.

At a minimum, the ESA for Australia initiative will contribute to the ABS’s existing annual four-year forward work program review process. This initiative will increase the efficacy of this process, as well as highlight the breadth of demands for statistical information across policy domains which the ABS and other producers of official statistics are required to consider.

It is important to note that there are many statistics that are not on the list of ESA for Australia but are nonetheless important for decision making, and the ESA for Australia initiative will not in itself lead the ABS or any other agency to cut any statistics which are not present on the list.
