In 2014, the Australian Bureau of Statistics was provided with a dataset of temporary visa holders in Australia as at 31 July 2011 by the Department of Immigration and Border Protection to assess its suitability for integration with the 2011 Census of Population and Housing. In 2015–16, the ABS proceeded to probabilistically link the records of international students and temporary skilled workers in Australia with person-level information from the 2011 Census. The resultant dataset, the Australian Census and Temporary Entrants Integrated Dataset, promises to contribute significantly to a better understanding of the socio-economic characteristics and geographic distribution of these two temporary entrant populations, leading to more informed and targeted policy development and evaluation. This paper describes the creation of the linked dataset and provides an assessment of its quality.
