The NSW Data Analytics Centre’s (DAC) mission is to build world-class capabilities in whole-of-government data analytics to improve health and well-being, safety, social, economic and environmental outcomes for the citizens of NSW. In a world of increasing complexity, population growth and rapid change, data analytics has the potential to deliver innovation in service provisions and improve outcomes by generating new perspectives on complex problems. The NSW DAC was the first of its kind in Australia, and a model now being replicated in other jurisdictions.

NSW DAC has been working on projects designed to make our streets and roads safer, our businesses vibrant, and our environment cleaner. With a team of multidisciplinary and highly qualified personnel, and an organisational structure that fosters a creative work environment, NSW DAC is leading whole-of-government data analytics. As the trusted data user and a source of technical, methodological and practice expertise the DAC is in a unique position to assist NSW Government to realise the value of its data.
