The AIHW provides statistical information that governments, researchers and the community can use to promote discussion on and improve the delivery of health and welfare for Australians.
Where data is not publicly available, you may request data.
All requests for sensitive data are assessed against legislation and privacy principles and agreements with partner policy agencies, to determine if the information can be lawfully disclosed.
Our data on request service enables you to request new data tables within one specified data collection at new and different levels of disaggregation using different or derived data items.
Before deciding to request data, complete the following steps:
Data linkage is when data from more than one source, but relating to the same individual or institution, is brought together. This is also known as 'data integration' and 'record matching'.
The AIHW collects and holds data on many subjects, and from multiple administrative datasets. This means the AIHW is in a unique position to link data across many health and welfare spheres.
All data linking requests must be approved by the AIHW Ethics Committee.
Some requests may be subject to a Five Safes assessment.
