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 Early Childhood and Education data collection should have a unique identifier at the national level.
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.
