Collection and usage attributes
|Guide for use:|
This information is collected mainly for Disability Support Pension recipients.
The ranges in this variable are used for Job Capacity and Employment Services assessments. Different ranges can be used for different assessments and have been updated over time as policy has changed.
Work capacity is assessed in whole hour blocks. Where work capacity is assessed in partial hours the hours are rounded up. For example, a work capacity of 14.5 hours per week would be included in the permissible value of 15-22.
