Other issues caveats:Help on this term

Indicator (b) is unchanged from indicator (b) in the previous NDA. No new data are available for this cycle of reporting.

Reporting issues are the same as listed in performance indicator (a).

2009 SDAC does not provide this data for the Indigenous population; therefore Indigenous data needs to be taken from a different source (e.g. NATSISS 2008).

The NATSISS uses an abbreviated form of the Disability Module, which is less detailed than the SDAC.

Social and community activities as defined in the NATSISS are more culturally appropriate for Indigenous Australians than those in the SDAC.

SDAC does not collect information on whether travelled to a social activity in the last two weeks for persons in cared accommodation. Data are available for private dwelling and non-cared accommodation special dwellings only.

No new data available (2009 SDAC reported for the previous cycle.  2008 NATSISS reported for the baseline).
