About the Event

The Australian Child and Youth Wellbeing Atlas (ACYWA) is a freely available data asset that maps information on children and young people in communities across Australia. Supported by an ARDC co-investment, it enables the visualisation, analysis, and monitoring of health and wellbeing metrics for children and young people. It empowers researchers, community, state and federal organisations, and the not-for-profit sector to identify priorities for child and youth wellbeing in meaningful and cost-effective ways.

In this webinar – co-presented by the Australian Sensitive Data Interest Group (AUSDIG) and the Australian and New Zealand Data Quality Interest Group – you’ll learn about the ACYWA from 2 of its University of Western Australia creators.
