Datasets Available in the Master Linkage Map/File

The Master Linkage Map is a database located in a secure and protected facility within the Data Linkage Unit of SA NT DataLink.  It holds a discrete and select range of linkage variables (e.g. name, date of birth, sex, address) across multiple datasets. Datasets and updates are provided by Data Custodians to enable SA NT DataLink to maintain the Master Linkage File.

All data added to the Master Linkage Map is subject to the Data Custodian's approval in accordance with the conditions in the Deed of Agreement (DEED) or Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with SA NT DataLink. 

Data provision and storage in the Master Linkage Map for South Australian Government dataset is also subject to the approval of the Privacy Committee of South Australia.

The Northern Territory Government datasets are provided and stored in accordance with the Information Act 2002 (NT)

For a list of available datasets in the Master Linkage Map, please go to the Available Datasets under the 'For Researchers' tab.
