The census data will be stored on a secured computer server in line with the University of Melbourne’s data storage and security protocols. Access to raw data will only be available to the University research team for analysis and reporting. Census results can be accessed by the public through the MY Australia website and knowledge hub.

All data collected will be kept completely confidential and anonymous. The data will be de-identified before analysis and storage, meaning any personal information such as name or contact details will be removed from the rest of the survey data and stored separately.

Census data will be analysed by the University of Melbourne research team in accordance with its ethical research guidelines.

Census data will be used to produce the first ever multicultural youth status report. This report and aggregated census data will be made available to the public through the MY Australia website.
