The Frameworks for Australian Social Statistics Expert Reference Group

The Australian Bureau of Statistics' (ABS) external consultation approach to the review and redevelopment of Frameworks for Australian Social Statistics (FASS) was guided by a conceptual-thinkers Expert Reference Group (ERG). The ERG was chaired by Deputy Australian Statistician, Peter Harper, (Population, Labour and Social Statistics Group), and included eminent representatives from research and government organisations. The ERG provided feedback to the ABS at each step of the FASS development process. The ABS would like to express sincere gratitude for their contribution.
