A dataset showing the number of people who have private health insurance by locality (suburb or LGA or SA2/3).

Relax copyright restrictions of Training Packages

The VET Training Packages (available at training.gov.au) have copyright licence CC BY-ND for packages after 2011, meaning no derivative works are allowed. This precludes building innovative tools which disaggregate the data and allow more fluid analysis across units. These sort of tools would be valuable to assist teachers to develop training materials and holistic assessment instruments across multiple units, to understand ...more »

FairWork for all

The FairWork ombudsman has a web-app for calculating various pay rates and conditions (https://calculate.fairwork.gov.au/). If we could expose the tools as an API, it would allow app developers to provide additional or better tools to help workers and businesses. It would also potentially free up the ombudsman from providing their own tools.

Water managment

As there is limited water resource of fresh water, we can save the water in many cases like of bathing by limiting the use of water in collages. A system should be made where each student is provided a certain amount of water for bathing. A account system can be made where when ever a student goes for bathing he enters his registration number and the water used by him should be calculated. By this way we can prevent excess ...more »

Pecuniary Interests Register

With the pre election focus on negative gearing, I am getting questions from the public on properties owned by MP's. This information is in the Pecuniary Interests Register which is online in PDF form. These PDF's can't be used in a database so the insights this data could provide the public are lost. Years ago Fairfax got a bunch of UTS journalism students to recreate the Federal Pecuniary Interests register as a dataset, ...more »

National Drugs Strategy Household Survey

Hi, I currently have access to the 2010 National Drugs Strategy Household Survey dataset ( https://data.gov.au/dataset/national-drugs-strategy-household-survey ) which I was having fun playing around with. I was hoping for similar access to past surveys as the NDSHS has been conducted every 2 to 3 years since 1985, which is a lot of data but it would be very interesting to see changes in attitudes. I think the ADA ...more »

Australian Data Archive - migration to data.gov.au

The Australian Data Archive (available at http://www.ada.edu.au) is a great repository of data including information that is not generally available anywhere else. For example, it provides access to historical Australian Census of Population and Housing data pre-1996 that are not (openly) available from the Australian Bureau of Statistics. The metadata is very good quality and should be relatively straight-forward ...more »

Accessing AIATSIS spatial data

I am currently doing a project that I hope will bring light to the Indigenous Australians who served in WWI. I wish to determine what Indigenous nation each soldier was born in. I know the birth place of each soldier. If I had access to the AIATSIS database that was used to create this map - http://aiatsis.gov.au/aboriginal-studies-press/products/aboriginal-australia-map - I could create an API to do this.
