Collection and usage attributes

Guide for use:Help on this term

A person or persons may request more than one type of assistance on a single occasion.

Categories used in individual community services data collections should be mappable to the service activities classification in the National Classifications of Community Services, version 2.0 (NCCS v2.0). Service activities should be collected according to the lower level of coding in the NCCS v2.0.

To meet program or service specific needs, the categories used in individual data collections may be more detailed than those in the service activities classification but they should always be mappable to categories in this classification.

Collection methods:Help on this termThis metadata item can be collected for the main service activity type requested or all types.
