Data scope

All occupational therapists renewing their professional registration in jurisdictions that have a registration board. The national association assists with distribution of the survey to members in some jurisdictions without registration boards. The 2002–03 survey was distributed to registered Occupational Therapy in Qld, SA and NT and to members of OT Australia in the other states and ACT as these jurisdictions did not have a registration board in 2002–03. For 2002–03, 3,769 valid responses were provided to the AIHW for analysis. In the absence of an accurate estimate of the total population of occupational therapists it was not feasible to weight responses to the survey.
