The SCU recently assisted the Department of Education and Training (DET) on a statistical modelling project, aimed at identifying characteristics of Western Australian 15-19 year olds who were not participating in employment, training or education in 2001.
This project was ground breaking in that it enabled DET and ABS to work in partnership to improve the quality of research available. DET managed the project and advised the ABS with methodology and modelling variables. DET staff prepared the SPSS programs and an ABS officer ran the programs on the complete (100%) Census file.
After ensuring confidentiality, the output of the modelling was provided to the DET for analysis and reporting. The outcome of this partnership can be seen in the DET paper "Engaging Youth: The Status of Youth participation in Education Training and Employment in Western Australia". The following acknowledgment appears in the DET paper "I would like to acknowledge the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) in working collaboratively with the Department in providing selected access to the complete, confidentialised Census data." (Paul Albert, Director General, Department of Education and Training.)
The SCU will consider similar requests for working in partnerships with other government departments and research units.
