Australian Bureau of Statistics – Discussion Paper: Information needs for Volunteering data
The Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) has launched a national public consultation on statistics for volunteering and giving. The consultation will help clarify the data needs of Australian communities and decision-makers for information on volunteering and giving activity.
The ABS sees this as a ‘unique opportunity for data users and the public to have their say on the current information available about volunteering and giving and how well it meets their needs’.
The Discussion Paper provides background information. Initial consultations identified a number of data requirements which are summarised on the ABS website. The ABS would like to know if there are other volunteering and giving data needs, activities, issues or elements that have not been addressed in this summary. Comments are due to the ABS by Friday 12 May 2017.
