The Office for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health (OATSIH) Services Reporting (OSR) data set specification (DSS) describes service level information from primary health care, standalone substance use and Bringing Them Home and Link Up counselling service providers that received funding from OATSIH for the period 2011–12.
The scope of the OSR aggregate-level data collection is the services, programs and activities undertaken by the service providers; including the number of clients, episodes of care, and client contacts. The data is used to inform Indigenous health policy, and program development and implementation.
The OSR DSS contains four component data set specifications:

The OATSIH Services Reporting (OSR) is a single questionnaire that incorporates 5 sections:
