Relevance:Help on this termAdministrative data on recipients of the DSP, Newstart and Youth Allowance is the data source for the numerator and denominator. Persons with a disability, however, may receive other forms of income support, such as disability pension paid under the Veterans’ Entitlements Act 1986. These other forms of income support are not able to be included in the numerator or denominator for this indicator, as presence of disability is not generally part of the eligibility criteria for these payments.
