Identifying and definitional attributes
|Metadata item type:||Data Set Specification|

Collection and usage attributes
|Guide for use:|
Data elements in this cluster assist in describing the types of supervision young people under the youth justice system experience. For example, the information provided in the order file aids in analysing how many youth justice orders were:
The person identifier in the order file cluster is used to link with the client file cluster, in order to connect information on the characteristics of young people with the types of orders they experienced.
The order end reason data elements in this file provides information on why an order ended, including reasons such as completed, revoked, cancelled and stayed pending appeal. This aids in describing how a young person exited a period of supervision.
The last known postcode of the young person in this file is used to describe whether the young person lived in a major city, regional, or remote area prior to receiving the order, as well as whether the young person was from areas of lowest or highest socioeconomic status.
The order file is also used to create episodes of community-based supervision (in combination with the detention file), based on the order start and end dates (and detention start and end dates).
