Comments:Help on this term

This item categorises services by funding type to provide contextual information for the Report on Government Services (RoGS).

This item will allow early childhood education data from the National Early Childhood Education and Care Collection to be disaggregated by the service funding type (e.g. if reporting the indicator ‘children enrolled in an early childhood education program’, data could be disaggregated by those enrolled in a service that is government funded, or those enrolled in a service that is privately funded only).
