16 Jun 2008
Description

In this report, the feasibility and usefulness of linking the Supported Accommodation Assistance Program, child protection and juvenile justice data collections is investigated.Linking the Supported Accommodation Assistance Program, child protection and juvenile justice data collections would provide valuable information about the characteristics of people who are involved in one or more of these sectors. This information would support policies and programs aimed at implementing, monitoring and evaluating targeted intervention strategies. In this report, the feasibility of linking these three data collections is investigated. The authors conclude that linkage is technically feasible and that both the SAAP and juvenile justice data collections have data currently suitable for linkage. Linkage with the child protection data collection would be dependent on the successful implementation of the planned national minimum data set.
