Computation will be appropriate to the target population and corresponding available data, including jurisdiction demand data and SDAC enhancements. Multiple measures for this indicator give person and system level perspectives on unmet demand.
Service system-identified unmet demand as a proportion of confirmed demand—computation based on confirmed demand measured at jurisdiction level (under Priority A deliverable 3, jurisdiction demand data are planned to be available from 2010). This measure is based on jurisdiction demand data.

|Further data development / collection required:|
Indicator e(1) is intended to give a service system identified measure of unmet demand as a proportion of confirmed demand. Definitional work to inform data development for Indicator e(1) is proceeding under NDA Priority A Deliverable 3. This indicator will be based on jurisdicational demand data, which will need to be comparable with regards to definitions, items and computation methods.
|Other issues caveats:|
Available disaggregation depends on sampling errors and other caveats.
