DATA ITEM LIST
A Data Item List is available on the Downloads tab. This Data Item List indicates the availability of items on TableBuilder and/or the Detailed Microdata files and what each data item value indicates in the data. Before choosing which product to use, users should review the Data Item List and study the topics and the level of detail that is available for each microdata product. This will help users in deciding which product is more appropriate for their data needs.
Each sheet of the Data Item List indicates a level of data (e.g. Household, Person, Violence prevalence, Emotional abuse), or a grouping of data about a selected person (e.g. Demographics, Education, Employment, Social connectedness, General safety).
A glossary of some of the definitions for the data items can be found in the Glossary of the Personal Safety, Australia, 2016 (cat. no. 4906.0) publication. For more detailed information about the data, refer to the Personal Safety Survey, Australia: User Guide, 2016 (cat. no. 4906.0.55.003).
For confidentiality and/or usability reasons, some data item values have been collapsed and/or restricted in these microdata products.
