Annual Report 2004

The public use file

Data from LSAC will be warehoused at the Australian Institute of Family Studies and will be available to researchers approved by the Australian Government Department of Family and Community Services, and who must abide by strict security and confidentiality protocols. Prospective users will be required to complete a dataset application and read and sign a deed of license.

Application forms and deeds of license are available on the study's website. A nominal fee will be charged to cover administrative costs of delivering datasets ($77 for Australian users, $132 for overseas users).

The Institute will provide user support services to those who receive the data. Datasets supplied to users will be accompanied by a user manual including a description of the sample design, how the study was conducted, details of weighting procedures and item derivations, and a listing of variable names, labels, and response categories. User training sessions will be offered by the Institute to expand upon the information provided in the user manual.
