Collection and usage attributes

Guide for use:Help on this term

The actual number of hours is not the number of hours staffed; for example, a 'group home' would operate 24 hours a day, but might only be staffed a few hours if at all on some days.

Services that have no regular daily pattern of operation, or which have different weekday and weekend patterns, should record 'no regular pattern of operation through a day' (for example, flexible hours, on call, 24-hour sleepover).

Collection methods:Help on this termIt may be necessary to collect the information separately for week-days versus weekend days or, for individual days of the week if there is no consistent pattern.
Comments:Help on this term

When collected in conjunction with service operation days, and service operation weeks, this metadata item can provide useful information on patterns of service delivery.
