Completion of the National Data Network Pilot Project
The National Data Network (NDN) Pilot Project commenced in 2004 and was completed in 2008. The Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) led the development of the NDN in collaboration with a range of organisations which included the Australian Research Alliance for Children and Youth (ARACY) as well as Commonwealth and State Government agencies.
The NDN project showed that there is an increasing demand for sharing and linking of information across government. This has been borne out in a number of government reports released over the last year.
