Population Evidence and Data Science

In partnership with the other ARC themes, this theme aims to significantly add to the evidence base and apply evidence on using data in the best way to understand population health needs and outcomes.

Community engagement will underpin this theme to support evidence-driven local population health action.

Core strategic strands include:

  • Innovative methods: identifying, developing and sharing innovative methods relating to population health.
  • data access and use.
  • Data linkage: supporting and influencing the establishment and use of linked data sets to inform population health research.
  • Vulnerable populations: developing the evidence base on vulnerable populations at risk of poor health with a focus on the use of population health data to improve outcomes.
