Validation and accuracy

We undertake benchmarking data collection and analysis to provide a valid framework for making comparisons over time and across populations. For example we:

  • Systematically benchmarked the characteristics of the specialist homelessness workforce against those of other community services workforces for Commonwealth Department of Families, Housing, Community Services and Indigenous Affairs
  • Carried out benchmarking analysis in our evaluation of the Australian Paid Parental Leave (PPL) scheme to establish an accurate picture of key aspects of work and family life before the introduction of the new scheme
