Comments:Help on this term

Most recent data available for 2012 CRC report: 2009–10

ACAP assessment is required to access residential aged care, Community Aged Care Packages (CACP), Extended Aged Care at Home (EACH), EACH Dementia (EACH-D) and the Transition Care Program. ACAP assessment not required for Home and Community Care (HACC) and Veterans’ Home Care (VHC).

DoHA population projections:

DoHA projections of the total population are based on the 2006 Census. These projections were prepared (as SLA level) for DoHA by the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) according to assumptions agreed to by DoHA.

DoHA Indigenous population projections were prepared from ABS Indigenous Experimental 2006 ERP data (at SLA level) projected forward so as to align with published ABS Indigenous Experimental Estimates and Projections (ABS cat. no. 3238.0, series B) at the state and national level.

DoHA projections by remoteness areas are prepared by summing SLA projections to Remoteness Areas.
