Collection and usage attributes
|Guide for use:
The service identifier includes components that identify main service type, state/territory and a number for each service.
Each service included in the Children's Services NMDS collection should have a unique identifier at the national level. Allocation of the service identifier should be undertaken by the organisation responsible for the Children's Services NMDS collection.
All individual caregivers working for family day care/in-home care services are provided with the same service identifier as the service in which they work.
The number may be used to identify particular records that require some follow-up contact with services to resolve any queries on the data reported.
