An online survey of Australian researchers is underway to confirm the 'High Value or Core Data Collections' that should be made available across Australia for linked data research in health and the range of human services.

Researchers can prioritise the data collections that, if linked, would add the greatest value to nationally significant research and policy relevant analysis.

Quantifying and knowing researcher's preferences will help build the national data linkage infrastructure that meets researchers’ needs.

The survey should take approximately 10 minutes to complete:

The survey closes this Friday, 23 June 2017.

The survey has been created by Population Health Research Network (PHRN), an Australian Government-funded initiative under the National Collaborative Research Infrastructure Strategy (NCRIS) that supports national population-based data linkage research infrastructure.

More information about the survey can be found at PHRN - For Researchers.
