    Data qualifications:

    • For those households who commenced receiving assistance in a previous financial year (i.e. prior to 1 July 2011) and they continued to receive this assistance, include only the value of assistance provided for the year ending 30 June 2012 (i.e. disregard the value of assistance provided prior to 1 July 2011)
    • For those households who commenced receiving assistance in a previous financial year (i.e. prior to 1 July 2011) and they continued to receive this assistance, report the originating date of the assistance (i.e. the date the household first received the assistance)
    • A separate record should be provided for each type of assistance provided to a household
    • Households receiving ongoing assistance should be counted once for the financial year only for each program type where assistance was provided—regardless of which financial year assistance commenced
