DOMINO is a longitudinal dataset that provides greater analytical capability for the Department of Social Services (the Department), and researchers. DOMINO contains modular events-based data on individuals, providing a longitudinal picture of the interaction of individual welfare recipients throughout their interactions with payments from the Department.

At this presentation, you will be able to see demonstrations of use cases of DOMINO. These data have been designed with a focus on supporting enduring data integration and as an asset for future research. DOMINO contains information on recipients’ demographics, benefits history, concessions, education (where available) and housing.

DOMINO has the potential to work interoperably with other data tools, resources, and initiatives. New developments, which will help automate access to the data, include work by Data61 in partnership with the Department on the Sensitive Data Access (SenDA) Project, and the Selection, Extraction and Transfer Tool (SETT).
