Scope:Help on this term

This cluster is referred to as the CPSS client file. It is used in all three of the CPSS NMDS, all of which are unit record data. The first is the child protection specific data, which includes notifications, investigations and substantiations and services provided. The second is data on children who are on care and protection orders. The third is data on children in out-of-home care.

The Child Protection and Support Services National Minimum Data Set (CPSS NMDS), is designed to capture information on all children and young people involved in the child protection systems throughout Australia.
