A snapshot of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities using specialist disability services in Australia, 2002

Australian Institute of Health and Welfare (AIHW),

2003

Using data from 2002 Commonwealth/State Disability Agreement Minimum Data Set (CSDA MDS) collection, this article provides a snapshot of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities using specialist disability services in Australia. The findings give an indication of the diverse range of people that access specialist disability support services in Australia. Among them, people with intellectual and developmental disabilities represented about two-thirds of those who accessed services. Hence, the data highlights the high levels of support needs of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities using these services.
