Scope:Help on this term

The person details data dictionary contains the data elements to identify the name and demographic characteristics of a person defined as a human being, whether man, woman or child. It is based on the Standards prepared by Standards Australia Subcommittee IT-027-01, Personal and Corporate Data-Representation and Management, for Committee IT-027, Data Management and Interchange to supersede AS 4590-1999.

The revised AS 4590—2006 Interchange of client information standard is a result of industry concern at the numerous data interchange formats used within the information technology industry. The objective of the Standard is to provide industry with a common client data interchange standard.

Wherever possible, the definitions of data elements are based on existing standards.

Reference has been made to International and Australian Standards, and to standards from the Australian Bureau of Statistics.
