Project Description

Field design and management of the Census of Population and Housing conducted by the Australian Bureau of Statistics requires detailed planning and complex system-wide decision making. Official statistical agencies have developed a number of procedures to effectively manage Census operations. However, the research aimed at evaluating alternative field design and management of large scale statistical collections lags behind the needs of the industry. This project will develop a novel methodology that integrates conceptual and process modelling, data mining, and simulation modelling tools in order to enable effective decision support for design and management of large scale statisitical operations in Australia
