Computation description:Help on this term

While information about need for more assistance is available from SDAC 2003, it is not possible to separate this into need for formal or informal assistance. The interim measure will include both formal and informal assistance.

In SDAC, need for assistance is collected for ten activity areas. This indicator will be the aggregation of need for assistance across nine activity areas: cognition or emotion, communication, housework, meal preparation, mobility, paperwork, property maintenance, self care and transport. Health care will be excluded from this indicator.

Computation:Help on this term

R/N x 100

where R = (interim) number of people in the potential population who need more assistance than they are currently receiving (excluding assistance with health care) and N = estimated potential population.

 

Numerator:Help on this term

(interim) Number of people aged 0–64 years in potential population who need more assistance than they are currently receiving (excluding assistance with health care).

Denominator:Help on this term

(interim) Number of people aged 0–64 years in potential population. Although the definition of potential population is under review by the National Disability Data Network, the National 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.

Further data development / collection required:Help on this term

An interim measure, the proportion of potential population who need more assistance, will be reported for the baseline CRC report. It will include both formal and informal assistance.

Other issues caveats:Help on this term

Demand (expressed need) is a subset of total need. This interim indicator is a measure of unmet need, which is a broader measure than unmet demand.

Available disaggregation depends on sampling errors and other caveats. Cells

with numerator counts less than 5 will be suppressed.

2003 SDAC is the latest available source for data about need for assistance. SDAC data are collected every six years.

Further classification details:

Country of birth: Other English speaking countries is the subtotal of Australian and other English speaking countries.

Remoteness: Based on ASGC. Other includes Outer Regional, Remote and Very Remote
