Who is it for?

All those interested in accessing, using or understanding the value of longitudinal data; those making longitudinal data available to others; and government, policy makers and end users who may wish to apply longitudinal data to solve policy problems or challenges.

About the National Centre for Longitudinal Data (NCLD)

The NCLD was established in 2014 to advance a longitudinal evidence base able to inform policies to improve the wellbeing of Australians throughout their lives. The NCLD is:

  • Guiding future government investment in longitudinal surveys and data, having just completed a national Review of Australia's Longitudinal Data Architecture
  • Actively promoting the use of longitudinal data by researchers and policy makers
  • Managing four nationally significant longitudinal data sets
  • Supporting increased collaboration between the developers of longitudinal surveys, researchers and policy makers
  • Exploring new ways of linking longitudinal data sets to gain a deeper understanding of Australian society.
