Data and insights

The increasing maturity of the NDIA means we are collecting a lot of valuable data. This gives a picture of the needs, successes and challenges for Australians who live with a disability, those who support them, and those who work within the sector.

The NDIS is sharing this data in a range of formats including downloadable reports and spreadsheets, analysis and presentations. As new information becomes available it will be added. Over time, more features will be added with data visualisation tools to make it easier to identify the data required. 

We invite you to explore this data to further your own knowledge of the disability sector, its challenges and the way the NDIS is working to create a more accessible and inclusive society.
