Benchmark:Help on this term

Performance benchmark (b): between 2009 and 2018, there will be a five percentage point national decrease in the proportion of people with disability who report a need for more formal assistance.

Other issues caveats:Help on this term

This new indicator incorporates indicator (d) from the previous NDA (no data available) and indicator (e), measure 3. Data are required to be backcast for 2009 due to a revised method of calculating the potential population which affects the numerator and denominator.

SDAC does not collect information on need for more formal assistance for persons in cared accommodation. Data are available for private dwelling and non-cared accommodation special dwellings only.
