IDI ACM Client
[acm_client] (Published)

Demographic table, containing information on all individuals (Clients) who seek assistance from Auckland City Mission. This table is overwritten with each visit a Client makes to the Mission, and the entered_date will reflect the most recent visit made by the Client. The majority of the variables contained in this table will only be used for linking and will not be available to researchers, to protect the privacy of individuals. The general view from Auckland City Mission is that the “Client” table is the best quality one, as it is consistently updated, where some other tables are not.
