Confidentiality and use of data
Resilient Youth Australia seeks to comply with the National Statement of Ethical Conduct in Research Involving Humans (2007) Australian Government, which sets out ethical principles for the use of data. We comply with these ethical principles to ensure:
- protection of individual rights to privacy and confidentiality;
- the information benefits the participants;
- we keep in mind the principles of justice, autonomy and beneficence.
Specifically, identified data relating to individual students is not collected. All data is grouped. The survey results from any one school or community are strictly available only to that school or community. Aggregated data will be used by Resilient Youth Australia for Australia-wide and related comparisons and interpretation, and will be made available to government and agencies to inform future policy. Academic and other researchers may apply to use the General Release datasets for their research.
