Collection and usage attributes

Guide for use:Help on this term

Each client receiving a service during the reporting period should be counted only once, regardless of the number of times they accessed the service in that time period.

This data item refers to the number of clients receiving services, not those 'on the books', 'on waiting lists', number of 'beds' or 'places'.

Comments:Help on this term

The information is needed to provide a basic count of people accessing services, and will relate to population data from the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) to help in assessing met and unmet need.
