Collection and usage attributes
|Population group age from:||16 years.|
|Population group age to:||62 years.|
Number of persons with disability who receive the Disability Support Pension divided by total number of people with disability (expressed as a percentage).
The indicator as calculated is a ratio rather than a proportion because the numerator and denominator are from different sources.
Number of persons with disability aged 16 to 62 years who receive the Disability Support Pension (DSP).
|Numerator data elements:|
Total number of people with disability aged 16 to 62 years on 30 June of the previous reporting period (e.g. 2008 for the baseline report) as calculated by using age-sex specific disability prevalence rates from the most recent SDAC multiplied by the ERP. For the 2011 report, denominator data will come directly from SDAC 2009.
|Denominator data elements:|
|Disaggregation data elements:|
- Sex (male, female, persons) by age group (16–24, 25–34, 35–44, 45–54, 55–62, total 15–62)
- Country of birth (Australia, other English speaking countries, all English speaking countries, non-English speaking countries, total (including inadequately described))
Indigenous people by state/territory
- Sex (male, female, persons)
|Unit of measure:||Person|
Data source attributes
|Organisation responsible for providing data:|
FaHCSIA/Centrelink and ABS; quality statement to be produced by ABS.
|Other issues caveats:|
Available disaggregation depends on sampling errors and other caveats. SDAC 2003 does not provide Indigenous status data, the ABS will investigate whether the Indigenous denominator data will come from the NATSISS 2008 or calculated using a similar method to that used in indicator f.
Disability rates for the calculation of the denominator will be used under the assumption of constant rates of disability.
The age pension eligibility age for women is increasing each year so that by 2013 it will be 65 years, the same as for men. Over the following four years, the age pension eligibility age for all people will be increased each year so that by 2017 it will be 67 years. For the 2010 report and onwards, it should be possible to change the age scope of this indicator to be 16–64 years although a parallel indicator for 16–62 years should also be used to detect changes from the 2013 report.
