Most recent data available for 2012 CRC report is 2010-11.

The CDEP proportion is a stock variable presented at a point-in-time in a way consistent with the ABS population estimate. The off-CDEP proportion is a flow variable presented over a time interval. Over this time interval, multiple off-CDEP employment and CDEP participation episodes can be recorded per participant. As such, the off-CDEP employment measures refer to exits and participations (vis-à-vis participants).

From 2009-10, reporting for these measures will be split into the two sub-streams of CDEP (Work-Readiness Services and Community Development) following the CDEP restructure, effective from 1 July 2009.

In the new CDEP structure beginning 1 July 2009, new participants can be part of two streams of assistance – Work-Readiness Services and Community Development. From 2009-10 the above measures will be provided for the two streams of assistance. This will be in addition to reporting the total number and proportions reported above. The rationale for this is that the policy reform may have an impact on the number of off-CDEP employment exits, possibly with proportionately more coming from the work-readiness stream. Reporting it by sub-streams will facilitate monitoring the impact of the policy change and ensure across-time comparability.

Baseline year for NIRA target (Halve the gap in employment outcomes within a decade) is 2008; baseline year for this indicator is 2008-09; target year is 2018.
