Description:Help on this term

This indicator set contains the specifications for the 2017 Key Performance Indicators for Australian Public Mental Health Services (Jurisdictional level version).

These indicator specifications facilitate the supply and publication of jurisdictional level data, which is compiled to form the national view. The specifications are adapted from the related Key Performance Indicators for Australian Public Mental Health Services (Service level version) (2015–), which is an ongoing data development process. Despite the achievements to date, there remain gaps in the information available. Consequently, of the 15 Service level version indicators 13 have been operationalised for use in this indicator set.

The 2017 Jurisdictional level version indicators reference two different data set years (financial years) due to different data supply timelines for the range of different data sources used in the construction of the data, summarised in the table below:
