Data Linkage Integrating Authority

AIFS is  an accredited Data Linkage Integrating Authority. This means the Institute is authorised to undertake data integration projects involving Commonwealth data for statistical and research purposes.

Data integration involves bringing together multiple datasets to provide new datasets for statistical or research purposes. In order to protect Commonwealth data, integration projects that involve "high-risk" Commonwealth data and must be conducted by an accredited Integrating Authority.

We abide by the principles for data integration involving Commonwealth data for statistical and research purposes, and the best practice guidelines.
