EPISODE #68 | 'REALISING THE POTENTIAL OF DATA IN GOVERNMENT' WITH DR DAVID GRUEN AO AND CHERYL-ANNE MOY

The digital revolution has offered new ways to obtain data, without the need of putting a new survey in the field. New data sources have now become available, including job and wage data and household consumption. With the passing of the Data Availability and Transparency Act 2022 in March, we can anticipate an increased use of data to help deliver services, inform policies, and support research in the Australian government.
 
In this episode, Dr David Gruen AO, Australian Statistician at the Australian Bureau of Statistics, explores the critical role of data in responding to the pandemic and the future collaboration in deriving public value from data. His address was followed by a conversation with Cheryl-anne Moy, Deputy Secretary of Immigration and Settlement Services at the Department of Home Affairs, and IPAA ACT Deputy President.

Discussed in this episode:

  • New data sources that have become available and how they are being used to generate new statistics.
  • The growth in integrated data assets across various dimensions.
  • The opportunities presented by the passage of the Data Availability and Transparency Act 2022.
