The National Aged Care Data Clearinghouse (NACDC) is a central, independent repository of national aged care data. It coordinates data collection from various agencies and departments and creates data sets from the information that is collected.
By facilitating access to data and information for research, evaluation and analysis, the NACDC supports the development of evidence-based planning and practice in aged care.
The NACDC encourages transparency and reliability in aged care data use by publishing reports on aged care services, and making many of its data sets publically available. It also works on metadata and information management development and improving consistency across aged care data sets.
Aged care data and information from the NACDC are published in a range of reports and bulletins. Several of these are detailed on the Research and reporting page. In addition, the NACDC releases an annual web report on residential and community-based aged care, offering statistical information on services, facilities and people in care.
Residential aged care and aged care packages in the community reports:
Publications are listed on Aged care publications.
A range of aged care data from the NACDC is accessible through self-service options including the NACDC National Aged Care Places Stocktake Reporting Tool, RACP Regional Aged Care Profiles tool and the Aged care data cubes.
The Regional Aged Care Profiles tool is an interactive tool which presents graphical and tabular information on recipients of aged care services and operational government-funded aged care places for each aged care planning region (ACPR). ACPRs are used by the Australian Government in the planning and allocation process to determine the geographical distribution and types of aged care places to be made available across Australia. The tool draws data from the AIHW National Aged Care Data Clearinghouse, and users can select —for a particular ACPR—information on the number of places and recipients by year, provider type, programme type, age, sex, Indigenous status and country of birth. It includes rates of the number of places per 1,000 people, as well as some state and territory and Australian comparisons.
Please note the Regional Aged Care Profiles tool is delivered through SAS Visual Analytics software, and opens in a separate browser window. Data included in the Regional Aged Care Profiles tool are correct as at 30 June 2015 and are subject to revisions over time. These are described below.
The Stocktake Reporting Tool provides a quick, user-driven view of the number of operational aged care places in Australia at 30 June from 2006-2015. The Stocktake Reporting Tool summarises the number of aged care services and places into interactive graphical representations that enable the user to obtain an overview or to specify the year, aged care planning region, care type, and provider type.
Please note the Stocktake Reporting Tool is delivered through SAS Visual Analytics software, and opens in a separate browser window. Data included in the Stocktake Reporting Tool are correct as at 30 June 2015 and are subject to revisions over time.
The aged care data cubes include some detailed data relating to residential aged care, community aged care and the Transition Care Program from 2009-2012.
The Report on the Operation of the Aged Care Act (ROACA) data cubes provide additional data to complement the ROACA report, which is published annually by the Australian Government Department of Health.
Please note these are all SAS based data cubes.
The NACDC also provides customised aged care data to researchers and other stakeholders such as aged care sector and community agencies, and other government agencies.
If you have a specific requirement for data or statistics not covered by any of our published reports or online data, you can request customised aged care data through the AIHW custom data request service.
The AIHW explores potential research topics and data development projects for the NACDC, and the resulting working papers and recommendations are published on this web page for future reference. Recent explorations include:
