The ROACA report is an annual report on the operation of the
Aged Care Act 1997. To supplement the information in the
report, the AIHW has developed a set of data cubes that provide additional and more detailed information.
Three data cubes are currently available: The first contains
information on the number of operational home care packages that
were being provided as at 30 June 2015; the second information on
operational residential care places as at 30 June 2015; and the
third describes the number of people in permanent or respite care,
and selected characteristics, at 30 June 2015.
These cubes draw data from the AIHW National Aged Care Data
Clearinghouse, and additional to these basic counts, users can
tabulate these data by particular state or territory or Aged Care
Planning Regions (ACPR), by age, sex, Indigenous status, country of
birth, provider type and program type.
Note that minor differences may exist between the data contained
in the data cubes and that published in the ROACA report. While
both sources derive from an administrative dataset used to manage
aged care services in Australia, these data are subject to updates
and minor corrections, which may result in differences between the
two data sources over time.
Note: Cubes will open in new window.
A data cube is a multidimensional representation of data which
provides fast retrieval and drill down facilities.
When a data cube is opened default dimensions are shown. To view
other dimensions right-click on the dimension you want to replace
and select the 'Change' item. For example to replace sex with
country of birth right-click on sex and select 'Change Sex to',
then select 'Country of birth' from the list.
To add row totals and column totals or subtotals to the cube,
right-click anywhere on the cube and select 'Total'. In the
'Insert' section of the dialogue box select the type of total to
add and click 'Ok'. Please be aware that some data item measures
will not add to a total. For example, the individual service group
measures (accommodation support, community support, community
access, employment and respite) may not add to the total number of
service users (all service users) as a service user may use
services from more than one service group during the year.
To hide dimensions right-click on the dimension name and select
the 'Hide' menu item.
The data can be exported to either Excel or Word. Right click
the table area and select 'Export table' from the menu. Choose how
many rows you want to export, and whether to export to Excel or
Word or save as a tab or comma separated file. Give the file a name
and save it in the directory of your choosing.
