Australian National Data Integration Infrastructure

The AIHW and the ABS are developing the underlying technical and governance infrastructure that will deliver the NDDA. This infrastructure system is known as the Australian National Data Integration Infrastructure (ANDII). The ANDII refers to the national linkage and integration infrastructure. This includes a national spine and linkage model. It also includes data governance and streamlined data sharing arrangements.

Subject to future agreements, the underlying infrastructure for the NDDA could be used to create other specific data assets on other important policy issues.

The ANDII builds on recent government reforms, including the Data Availability and Transparency Act 2022 (DAT Act) and the Intergovernmental agreement on data sharing between the Australian and state and territory governments The ANDII will streamline the approach and reduce the time required to build and access integrated datasets.
