Consent to data linkage in women aged 18-23 in 2012-13


Linkage to administrative datasets is becoming increasingly important for large cohort surveys, such as the ALSWH. Linkages can substantially enhance the utility of the survey data and allow researchers to answer questions which are not readily answerable through the use of survey data alone. The online survey for the cohort of women aged 18-23 in 2012-13 included a request for the women to consent to linkage to administrative datasets. Possible variables associated with non-consent will be explored.
