This technical paper specifies the operational definitions and primary data sources for the key national indicators under the National Framework for Protecting Australia's Children 2009-2020. It outlines the best currently available data sources for the key national indicators that the AIHW has identified, in conjunction with the National Framework Implementation Working Group. It comments on data gaps and limitations, particularly inconsistencies between indicator (ideal) definitions and existing data definitions.
