The MADIP Modular Product (2011-2019) provides MADIP data as a set of separate files or ‘modules’ (e.g. a Personal Income Tax module, a Medicare Benefits Schedule module, a Geography module) from which users select based on their research need. The modules contain relevant person level information from each source. Only the modules needed for an approved project are provided to the researcher.
Modules in the MADIP Modular Product include:
- Core Module - Demographic information derived from Census, Death Registrations, DOMINO Centrelink Administrative Data, Medicare Consumer Directory, and Personal Income Tax data
- Geography Module - Geographic information derived from Census, DOMINO Centrelink Administrative Data, Medicare Consumer Directory, and Personal Income Tax data
- Medicare Benefits Schedule (MBS), 2011 to June 2020 data;
- Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme (PBS), 2011 to June 2020 data;
- DOMINO Centrelink Administrative Data (DOMINO), 2011 to June 2020;
- Personal Income Tax (PIT), 2010-11 to 2017-18 data;
- Apprentice and Trainee (AT), 2011-2019 data;
- Census of Population and Housing, 2011 (Census 2011) data;
- Census of Population and Housing, 2016 (Census 2016) data;
- Higher Education, 2011-2019 data;
- National Health Survey (NHS 2014-15 and NHS 2017-18) data, and
- Survey of Disability, Aging, and Carers 2018 (SDAC 2018) data.
A complete list of data items for the DataLab can be accessed from the Data downloads section. These contain details for each data item including the full output classification and any special codes used.
Test files containing synthetically generated randomised data have been created based on the Modular Product and are available from the Data downloads section. These test files allow researchers to become familiar with a modules structure and prepare code prior to accessing the product through the DataLab.
Users intending to apply for access to the MADIP Modular Product should review the data item list and test files to check that the level of detail in the MADIP Modular Product meets their project's data requirements. Customised MADIP data products can be considered when more detailed data is required. The ABS is also an Accredited Integrating Authority, and additional data sources can be integrated with MADIP for approved projects and subject to agreement from data custodians.
