Participant outcomes report

'NDIS Participant Outcomes 30 June 2018' is the first annual report on outcomes for NDIS participants. The report analyses the results for people who entered the Scheme in 2016-17 and 2017-18, and also the one year longitudinal change in outcomes for people who entered in 2016-17 and have been in the Scheme for one year.

Leveraging research conducted by the NDIS Independent Advisory Council (IAC), the outcomes framework takes a lifespan approach to the measurement of outcomes.

There are four different versions of the outcomes framework questionnaires, corresponding to four participant age groups. 

The report is organised with separate chapters for each age cohort, drawing together analyses from all data sources.

As well as summaries of overall results, the report includes chapters containing more in-depth analysis on one or two areas of particular relevance to each age cohort. High level summaries of results for all questions are included in separate volumes of Appendices.

On this page you can download the full report or download individual chapters and appendices.
