Students and teachers can access the data from the online Random Sampler to make comparisons between students like themselves and students in different year levels and parts of Australia.
The CensusAtSchool project is a free online questionnaire and analysis resource for students in Years four to 12 at all Australian schools.
The questionnaire phase is available annually during Terms 1 and 2 and the data is released early in Term 3 of each year.
For further information on the CensusAtSchool project including data for 2010, please visit the ABS website at www.abs.gov.au/censusatschool.
The Principles of Statistical Integration
The Commonwealth Government is seeking to meet demand for high quality data through the integration of information from several administrative and statistical sources. Greater statistical data integration will enable significant cost reductions in evidence-based advice and the development of a new range of official statistics.
Recognising that many challenges do not fit neatly within individual portfolios and the importance of establishing a common framework for statistical integration, Commonwealth Portfolio Secretaries established the Cross Portfolio Statistical Integration Committee (CPSIC) in April 2009, jointly chaired by the ABS and the Commonwealth Department of Health and Ageing.
The first stage of the Committee’s work involved the development of seven high level principles for statistical data integration across the Australian Government. These principles provide a framework for data integration for statistical and research purposes, while recognising information as a strategic resource and the accountability of data custodians.
The next stage of work is currently underway with consideration of appropriate institutional and governance arrangements in line with these principles. Consultation with a range of stakeholders is ongoing and a communications plan is also being prepared. For more information, please contact the CPSIC Secretariat, (02) 6252 7198.
