Access to services can become increasingly difficult the further away a client is from a major city. This section examines differences in client characteristics and service needs according to location. Similar to previous reports, for the purposes of the analysis, clients have been classified by geographical area based on the location of the agency from which they first received assistance in 2014–15. Agencies have been classified by geographical area based on the Australian Statistical Geography Standard  using the location details of each agency.

The denominator for the proportion achieving all case management goals is the number of client groups with a case management plan. Denominator values for proportions are provided in the relevant national supplementary table.
