How we keep IDI and LBD data safe

Note: We are migrating content from this page to our new website, www.stats.govt.nz

See:

Legal requirements

The Statistics Act 1975, the Privacy Act 1993, and the Tax Administration Act 1994 require us to protect the data we collect.

For the public good

We all want to live in a country where the population is healthy, safe, and educated.

Integrated data is a valuable tool for identifying actions and evidence-based solutions to improve outcomes for New Zealand, particularly when underlying causes are complex and funding is constrained.

For an IDI or LBD research proposal to be accepted, the proposal must show how the intended research is for the public good. By only approving research that meets this criteria, we are able to ensure that the benefits of integrated data outweigh the risks.

See research we commissioned on Public attitudes to data integration.

The five safes

We use a ‘five safes’ framework to ensure that we provide access to data only if all of these five conditions are met.
