Analysis of workforce indicators suitable for the ageing, disability and home care sectors: final report

Fiona, Hilferty, Natasha, Cortis,

Published Literature


The Workforce Indicators Project was commissioned by NSW Ageing Disability and Home Car to address a gap in the collection and availability of workforce data related to non-government community service organisations providing aged, disability and home care. The data collected will enable these organisations to undertake better workforce planning, and in some cases, demonstrate the contribution they make in building social capital. As evidenced by the workforce related projects government funding agencies have commissioned in recent years, this gap in information has tended to be filled with ad-hoc collection of workforce data intended to inform the short term planning and policy requirements of government funding agencies. Intermittent collection of data for immediate purposes only can be expensive for funding agencies. Moreover, the use of inconsistent methodologies in various projects has meant changes in particular workforce characteristics or themes have not been tracked over time.
