The Australian Productivity Commission will conduct a 12-month public inquiry to investigate ways to improve the availability and use of public and private sector data.
The Commission is required to:
- look at the benefits and costs of making public and private datasets more available
- examine options for collection, sharing and release of data
- identify ways consumers can use and benefit from access to data, particularly data about themselves
- consider how to preserve individual privacy and control over data use.
