Data linkage is when data from more than one source, but relating to the same individual or institution, is brought together. This is also known as 'data integration' and 'record matching'.
The AIHW collects and holds data on many subjects, and from multiple administrative datasets. This means the AIHW is in a unique position to link data across many health and welfare spheres.
All data linking requests must be approved by the AIHW Ethics Committee.
Some requests may be subject to a Five Safes assessment.
