The Healthy Communities Research Centre (HCRC) undertook a small-scale innovative project to locate and identify data collected within the Ipswich region that has the potential to contribute to health and wellbeing in the area. The data of interest were information gathered on a routine basis by organisations and groups outside the mainstream of public health. That is, grassroots data collection that currently 'flies under the radar' either because the information is not public, the potential for data use is not recognised or for some other reason.

The goal of the project was to find data sources that are valid, reoccurring and geographically bound, which can be used over time to help improve health in a local area. Thus, this project started at the bottom with what could be called a 'field investigation' or exploration of data collection in the Ipswich area.
