2 BRINGING TOGETHER 2011 CENSUS DATA WITH A SMALL NUMBER OF PREDETERMINED DATASETS DURING CENSUS PROCESSING USING NAME AND ADDRESS, TO CREATE STATISTICAL OUTPUTS
The key features of these projects are:
The 2006 Census Data Enhancement (CDE) project made use of name and address information from the 2006 Census during the Census processing period to undertake a number of identified quality studies (see Appendix 1). These quality studies have demonstrated the potential for significant statistical improvements to be made by bringing together data from the Census with other datasets. The outputs of the quality studies in 2006 were used to improve statistics and test and report on linking methodology. After careful consideration, the Australian Statistician has decided to harness these improvements to create statistical outputs in aggregate form.
There will be no changes to the methodologies used in 2006 to bring together the datasets. Once the projects have fulfilled their purpose the linked datasets will be destroyed. Names and addresses collected on the Census will be destroyed at the end of Census processing.
The purpose of the two proposed data integration projects to be undertaken during the 2011 Census processing period to create statistical outputs is outlined in the links provided above.
