IDI Ministry for Children data (CAP/CYF/OT)en-NZ
data documents the content of the Abuse, Client, Contact Records, Identity, Intake, Investigations, Partner, Placements, Safety Risk, Sociocultural, and Staff Phase Allocation tables that the MSD provides to Stats NZ to use in the Integrated Data Infrastructure (IDI). The CYF datasets contain administrative data collected from 1991 to (ongoing) for children or young persons (CYP) where it is believed the CYP is being or is likely to be harmed, ill-treated, abused, neglected, or deprived, where the CYP is alleged to have committed an offence, and/or a concern is raised about the CYP’s behaviour or insecurity of care. Datasets include facts about identities (person identities, identity characteristics, and relationships); facts over time; and information about events in the life of a person at a specific time or over time (proceedings, actions, measures, trials, procedures, dealings, occasions, and happenings). Information on concerns raised or reported for CYP included in the CYF data are additionally sourced from Police and/or other enforcement agencies, Youth Court, and Family Court. The Ministry of Social Development (MSD) provides Child, Youth and Family (CYF) data to Statistics NZ for integration into the IDI. The CYF datasets contain data about a child or young person (CYP), where:
- it is believed that a CYP is being or is likely to be harmed, ill-treated, abused,
- neglected, or deprived;
- it is believed that a CYP is alleged to have committed an offence;
- a concern is raised about the CYP’s behaviour or insecurity of care.
This CYP is captured in the dataset where this concern is raised or report made to either CYF, the Police (other enforcement agency), Youth Court or Family Court. The datasets currently include facts about identities (ie person identities, identity characteristics, and relationships) and they capture these facts over time. They also capture information about the events in the life of a person at a specific time or over a specific period. These events can be one of the following:
proceedings actions measures trials procedures dealings occasions happenings.
The dataset is operational and is used by MSD to process business operations.en-NZ
