Joint Project

The ABS WA office is undertaking a joint project with the Department of Indigenous Affairs to promote information sharing across government.

The project entails identifying and recording metadata for the statistical indicators used in the Overcoming Indigenous Disadvantage Report and two related frameworks, the Indigenous Women’s Report Card and Well-being Indicators for Children and Youth.

The project will highlight the benefits of sharing these indicator frameworks across government, with the goals of reducing overlap and compliance cost to agencies providing indicator data, and improving the statistical quality and comparability across frameworks. This information is to be stored in the across-Government ABS@ facility. Updating the frameworks will occur annually and will be coordinated by the ABS.

Greg Hilton joined the team in September. If the project proves successful, the intention is to continue identifying and loading other state government indicator frameworks to the ABS@ facility.
