R/N x 100 where R = number of carers aged 15–64 years (carers of persons with disability) who are in the labour force (employed or unemployed) and N = total number of carers (carers of persons with disability) aged 15–64 years.

Data source attributes
SDAC 2009 for all data
|Organisation responsible for providing data:||Australian Bureau of Statistics.|
|Accountability:||Shared (if shared, roles and responsibilities should be clearly delineated).|
|Further data development / collection required:|
Development of carer data in existing administrative collections, including the DS NMDS (carer data items are an identified redevelopment priority).
|Other issues caveats:|
Available disaggregation depends on sampling errors and other caveats.
The age of the care recipient will be limited to 0 to 64 years.
SDAC 2009 is the latest available source for data about the labour force participation rate of carers. SDAC data are collected every three years.
It is assumed that Indigenous status is that of the carer, not care recipient. Indigenous status is not available from SDAC 2003 data, and due to small sample sizes may not be usable from SDAC 2009. It may be possible to produce data on labour force participation of self-identified Indigenous carers from the Census but this would be a different population to Indigenous carers that would be captured through the SDAC. The NATSISS did not collect carer information so it would not be possible to produce data for carers of Indigenous persons with disability people at this time.
Primary carer (using 2003 definition) and non-primary carer (using 2003 definition data are provided for comparison with previously provided data from SDAC 2003.
