The microdata enables users to tabulate, manipulate and analyse data. Steps to confidentialise the dataset have been applied to ensure the integrity of data and maintain confidentiality of respondents. This includes removing any information that might uniquely identify an individual or household, reducing the level of detail for some items and collapsing some categories. For TableBuilder this also includes the use of Perturbation.
Approved users can use the information, about men's and women's various experiences of violence, to enable in-depth studies about violence, its nature, extent, impacts and consequences.
Detailed information about the data content and survey methodology is provided in the Personal Safety Survey, Australia: User Guide 2016 (cat. no. 4906.0.55.003).
