The AODTS-NMDS data cubes are subsets of data from the Alcohol and Other Drug Treatment Services National Minimum Data Set (AODTS-NMDS) collection.
The publications associated with these cubes may also be downloaded in full. Additional disaggregation of data may be requested using the ad hoc client request form. A charge may apply for ad hoc data requests to recover costs.
The cubes cover the period 2002-03 to 2010-11 (excludes the 2001-02 pilot).
The counting unit is a 'closed treatment episode'. A closed treatment episode refers to a period of contact, with defined dates of commencement and cessation, between a client and a treatment agency. As a unit of measurement, the 'closed treatment episode' used in the AODTS-NMDS cannot provide information on the number of clients who access publicly funded alcohol and other drug treatment, nor can it provide information on the extent of concurrent, sequential or recurrent service use.
It should also be noted that:
2002-03, 2003-04 and 2004-05
If you require more detail than is provided in the data cubes, please read Section 6 of the Alcohol and other drug treatment services NMDS specifications: 2011-12: specifications manual and collection guidelines. This section details the types of data that may be released and under which circumstances and relevant forms are included. If you require more information or assistance with the process, please contact the unit directly at email@example.com.
When a data cube is opened, the table shows 'Treatment services/agencies' as the default measure, by 'year and state' as default dimensions.
To add a dimension to the table, left click its icon and drag it towards the top left hand of the table.
To display an additional column dimension, wait till a left-pointing arrow appears and drop the icon. To display it as an additional row dimension, wait till a downward-pointing arrow appears and drop the icon.
To remove a dimension, right click its label in the top left hand of the table and select 'Hide <dimension>' from the menu, or you can replace the dimension by selecting 'Change <dimension> to <other dimension> from the menu.
If there are too many column and/or row headings which appear in the same screen, there are arrows that allow you to scroll through the column headings and row headings.
If you want to collate totals and present percentages of totals, right click on the table icon, where the data is displayed. This provides additional options for data presentation.
