The Australian Bureau of Statistics, the Australian Treasury and the Department of Families, Community Services and Indigenous Affairs (FaCSIA) collaborated in hosting a facilitated workshop on 8 June 2006. The workshop brought together senior experts from government, academia and the not for profit sector to discuss population well-being data gaps, including improving priority setting and facilitating whole of government approaches across this field of statistics.
The aims of the workshop were to:
- identify those information gaps and data shortcomings considered to be of highest priority;
- consider mechanisms for satisfying the gaps; and to
- suggest strategies and ongoing processes to drive forward an effective body of statistical information on population well-being over the next 5-10 years.
