Organisations

In 2019–20, 196 organisations reported to the Online Services Reporting (OSR) collection. Of these:

  • over one-third (35% or 68) were in the Northern Territory
  • over one-third (37% or 72) were in Very remote areas, 13% in Remote areas, 18% in Outer regional areas, 20% in Inner regional areas and 12% in Major cities
  • around two-thirds (63% or 123) were Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Organisations (ACCHOs), 32% were government-run organisations (many of these were Northern Territory Government-run clinics) and 6% were other non-government-run organisations.

Indigenous-specific primary health care organisations, by reporting period (number)

This Tableau visualisation shows the number of organisations for reporting periods 2013–14 to 2019–20.

Data supporting this visualisation are available in Excel supplementary data tables at Data.

The decrease in the number of organisations reporting in 2019–20 was partly a result of a change in the nature of reporting that period. Unlike in previous years, reporting to the collection was made voluntary for 2019–20 in acknowledgement of the additional pressures on organisations because of COVID-19. See also Technical notes and Impact of COVID-19 for information on interpreting changes over time.
