The Carer demographics file cluster contains demographic information about all carers who were authorised to provide funded home-based out-of-home-care placements at any point during the reference period. If individual carers are not recorded separately on jurisdictions' systems, a carer identifier should be assigned for the purpose of this collection and the primary carer demographic details recorded.
Collection and usage attributes
|Guide for use:|
For this file a person is a carer who was authorised to provide funded home-based out-of-home-care placements.
Each carer will be a new line in the file.
Carer attributes which may be reported differently over time, such as Indigenous status and disability status, should be reported as at the end of the reference period (i.e. 31 August 2012).
