This cluster applies to agencies or service type outlets providing data to the Disability Services National Minimum Data Set (DS NMDS). These data elements are used in conjunction with each other to determine the agency sector to which the organisation belongs.

Collection and usage attributes

Guide for use:Help on this term

The three data elements in this cluster can be combined to create the classification specified in the DS NMDS guide for item 'G. Agency sector' on the service type outlet form:


1  Commonwealth

2  State/territory

3  Local


4  Income tax exempt (charity)

5  Non-income tax exempt

Where a service type outlet has a formal relationship with a higher level funded agency then the agency sector of the higher level funded agency should generally be recorded.
