Projects

PEAN carries out research projects to show it is possible to generate useful insights into a complex issue by analysing data from more than one government portfolio. Each project runs for up to 12 months and uses Australian Government open data and data integrated by the Australian Bureau of Statistics. The data is de-identified to protect privacy. The projects help to build our capabilities and those of our partner agencies.
