Full dataset and linked data

Full de-identified survey dataset

This dataset includes all individual surveys items, derived variables and scale scores. You must select an ALSWH Liaison person to advise on your project. Apply directly to ALSWH – the application process takes approximately 2 months (see closing dates below).
Additional sub datasets may also be requested, including:

  • Qualitative data
  • Child data
  • Medications data

Linked health record data

May be requested along with the full survey dataset.

Attention! Use is strictly regulated. Approval will be sought from all relevant Human Research Ethics Committees and Data Custodians on your behalf. Note: this process is outside of our control and may take several months in addition to the standard application processing time.

For projects involving linked data, an ALSWH Project Liaison must be included in the project as a collaborator, and as an author on any publications. This requirement is due to the complexity of the data and ALSWH’s responsibilities to the data custodians.

Linked data for approved projects can only be accessed:

  • At ALSWH sites at The University of Queensland or The University of Newcastle. Visits must be booked; access depends on the facilities and resources available.
  • Remotely through the SURE facility, at the researcher’s expense.
