Description of data source

The annual Report on Government Services (RoGS) provides information on the equity, effectiveness and efficiency of government services in Australia.

RoGS utilises data drawn from multiple sources to support reporting – for the reported measure, RoGS draws on Preschool data (ABS) and SDAC.


The definitions are as per data sources used.

For the purpose of the reported measure under Australia’s Disability Strategy, disability is recorded if a child has a need for additional assistance in any of the following areas (learning and applying knowledge, education; communication; mobility; self-care; interpersonal interactions and relationships; other – including general tasks, domestic life, community and social life) compared to children of a similar age, that is related to underlying long-term health condition or disability that has lasted or is likely to last at least six months.


State and territory data are available. These data are not always directly comparable because the definitions vary across jurisdictions.

Data on representation in the community are sourced from: ABS Survey of Disability, Ageing and Carers. These data are comparable across jurisdictions. However, data for some jurisdictions are estimated with high degree of uncertainty and should be used with caution.
