DOMINO stands for Data Over Multiple Individual Occurrences. Established in 2017 as a data asset based on social security payments administrative data, DOMINO provides a very detailed and longitudinal view of individuals' interactions with the welfare system to support a range of government and academic research.

DOMINO captures information about people's changing circumstances over time. Importantly, unlike the official payments data assets, the payments data in DOMINO is regularly updated and revised as further information becomes available. This makes DOMINO a highly reliable and up to date data asset.
