Powerful data | Strong evidence | Informed policy
The Longitudinal Data Conference is Australia’s first major public event to focus on survey and administrative longitudinal data, the ways in which it can inform Australia’s social policy and the key policy questions that should be driving the research agenda.
The conference will bring together leading Australian and international researchers, policy-makers, policy influencers, leaders in data technologies, data modellers and analysts from across the public, private and not-for-profit sectors. It will be of particular interest to professionals working with the Australian Government as well as State and Territory Governments.
With its focus on longitudinal data the conference will be a showcase for:
Powerful data — Methods for collection, design, linkage and analysis
Strong evidence — Policy relevant research and analysis
Informed policy — Australia’s challenges and translation of evidence to policy
The conference replaces the biennial Household, Income and Labour Dynamics in Australia (HILDA) survey, and Longitudinal Study of Australian Children (LSAC) / Longitudinal Study of Indigenous Children (LSIC) conferences and is significantly expanded in scope to include all survey and administrative longitudinal data sets.
The conference will enhance Australia’s capability and capacity to use longitudinal data to improve the wellbeing of all Australians over their life course.
I encourage you to mark the conference in your diaries, to register your interest in keeping up-to-date with all the conference news (including when key note speakers are confirmed) and to submit an abstract for the conference program.
