The National Standards for Out-of-Home Care (NOOHCS) are a priority under the National Framework for Protecting Australia's Children 2009-2020. The National Standards have been designed to drive improvements and deliver consistency in the quality of care, so that children and young people in out-of-home care have the same opportunities as their peers to reach their potential in life.

Collection and usage attributes
Available trend data from 2009 onwards for reportable indicators are published on the AIHW website (AIHW 2017). The year listed above for each indicator (e.g. 2021) refers to the year of publication, not the year of data. As data sources vary across the indicators, so too does the data frequency (e.g. annual, biennial, four-yearly).
