Collection and usage attributes
|Population group age to:||64|
Performance Indicators for disability services funded by the Australian Government (employment services only) are restricted to the age range 15–64 years.
R/N x 100
where R = number of service users aged 0–64 years in the DS NMDS during the reporting period and N = estimated potential population on 30 June at the start of the reporting period.
Number of users of specialist disability services aged 0–64 years in the reporting period.
|Numerator data elements:|
Estimated potential population for specialist disability services on 30 June at start of reporting period.
Although the definition of potential population is under review by the National Disability Data Network, theNational Disability Information Management Group (NDIMG)agreed to adopt the conventional definition until the review completes. That is, people aged under 65 years with profound or severe core activity limitation will be used for the baseline CRC report.
Potential population will be calculated by applying age-sex-specific rates of severe/profound core activity limitation (from the Survey of Disability, Ageing and Carers (SDAC)2003) to the 30 June 2007Estimated Residential Population by state/territory by age group by sex. No Indigenous weight or scaling factor is used. National level age-sex rates from SDAC 2003, rather than state/territoryage- sex rates are used due to the high sampling errors associated with some of the state/territory-age-sex rate estimates.
The method used to calculate the country of birth and remoteness disaggregations will be the same as that adopted by the Disability Services Working Group for calculation of special needs group indicators in the Report on Government Services 2010. This method incorporates 2006 Census data for comparing population groups.
|Denominator data elements:|
|Disaggregation data elements:|
For each of the following service groups:
1. Disability services funded by state/territory governments (excludes employment services)
2. Disability services funded by the Australian Government (employment services only) (service types 5.01, 5.02 and 5.04)
3. All disability services
The following disaggregation will be presented for service groups 1 and 3 :
The following disaggregation will be presented for service group 2:
The following disaggregations will be presented for all service groups:
Rates of severe/profound core activity limitation from the SDAC will be used in the calculation of the denominator. SDAC 2003 is the latest available source for these data. Previous investigations have shown that these rates are stable over time.
|Unit of measure:||Person|
Data source attributes
|Reporting requirements:||COAG - annually.|
|Organisation responsible for providing data:|
AIHW to produce indicatorsQuality statements to be produced jointly by AIHW and ABS.
|Accountability:||Overall—shared; employment services—AG; Accommodation, respite, community support (includes management and individual service planning), community access services—state and territory governments.|
|Further data development / collection required:|
Once data are available from SDAC 2009, the AIHW will investigate the possibility of using state/territory-age-sex rates of severe/profound core activity limitation for the calculation of the potential population.
Classifications proposed above are appropriate for the current CSTDA/DS NMDS. Classifications will need to be reviewed in line with any future changes to the NMDS.
|Other issues caveats:|
Available disaggregation depends on sampling errors and other caveats. Cells with numerator counts less than 5 will be suppressed.
For service groups 1 and 3, people with age reported in the range 0 to 64 years and people with ‘not stated’ age are included in calculations for this indicator. For service group 2, people with age reported in the range 15 to 64 years only are included in calculations. People with age reported to be 65 years or older are not included.
Treatment of ‘not stated’ values within disaggregations (numerator only):
