Interactive data

The Medicare-subsidised mental health-specific services interactive figures provide data on provider types, states and territories and demographic information. These figures allow users to explore the data in more detail.

Interactive MBS: Five interactive figures showing data related to Medicare-subsidised mental health-specific services to 2019–20. Figure 1 is a line chart showing the per cent of the population of each jurisdiction receiving services from psychiatrists, general practitioners (GPs), clinical psychologists, other psychologists and other allied health providers from 2008–09 to 2019–20. GPs were accessed at the highest rate in Australia, at 9.0% in 2019–20. Figure 2 is a horizontal bar chart showing the per cent of services from each of the health providers noted in Figure 1 by demographic variables of age, sex and remoteness area in 2019–20. Females accessed services at a higher rate than males (19.5% of the total population compared to 12.6%). Figure 3 is a line chart showing the rate (per 1,000 population) of services by provider type for each jurisdiction from 2007–08 to 2019–19. The rate of services of all providers in Australia has grown with GPs providing the highest rate of services from 2010–11 to 2019–20. Figure 4 is a horizontal bar chart showing the rate (per 100 population) of services by provider type and demographic variables of age, sex and remoteness area in 2019–20. People aged 18–24 years accessed services at the highest rate at 69.6, compared to the total rate of 48.6. Figure 5 is a vertical bar chart showing the number or rate (per 100,000 population) of services in each jurisdiction by provider type in 2019–20. The ACT had the highest rate of clinical psychologists at 48.0, compared to the national rate of 27.0.
