NCLD Workshop summary
The workshop, held in July 2015, brought together senior officers from across different portfolios and senior academics in longitudinal research.
The key priorities from the workshop were to:
- Ensure the sustainability of Australia’s longitudinal data assets by encouraging a more coordinated “systems” approach to investments
- Use a life course model in the design of longitudinal data sets, recognising that interactions across life domains and developing broad based datasets will enable the best understanding of lifetime wellbeing
- Recognise that strong partnerships across government, academia, NGOs, and the private sector are critical for promoting the greater use, access, sharing and linkage of datasets while maintaining data security, analytical integrity and public confidence.
