Data linkage information


Our interviewer will be looking to ask for your consent to link your survey data to relevant government data. Data linkage is the process of combining various data sources to produce a more comprehensive picture of the factors affecting you. You can’t be identified when our specialists do this.

With your permission, we’d like to link your Growing Up in Australia data to some other data sources to expand the range and improve the quality of data we collect. Linking your responses with existing data also means we can ask fewer questions in the survey, saving time for you.

A digital copy of the Data Linkage brochure and other documents relating to data linkage can be found here:
