Minister delivers first round of NDIS data as part of new transparency agenda

  • Media release from the Minister

The first round of NDIS data has been released as part of the Australian Government’s commitment to demonstrate full transparency of the NDIS.

The Minister for the National Disability Insurance Scheme, Stuart Robert, today released data collected directly from participants, their families and carers.

Minister Robert said today’s data release will assist with informing and stimulating conversations about the disability sector which would not be possible without the participants, their families and carers that have been willing to share their experiences with the NDIS.

‘The data collected through the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) represents one of the largest surveys of those within the disability sector that has ever been conducted in Australia,’ Mr Robert said.

‘Data on participant outcomes shows improvements across various domains including children’s development, community participation, personal relationships, and choice and control for people with disability since the NDIS began.

‘We will continue to release further data and I am committed to open information sharing which both guides and measures the progress of the NDIS – a world first and the largest social reform since Medicare.

‘As demonstrated with today’s release, the data will build a clear and accurate picture of what is working in the NDIS and what challenges we need to overcome to ensure long term outcomes for participants.’

All data released as part of the transparency agenda can be found in the Data and insights section. All of the shared data is subject to strict privacy controls so that individuals cannot be identified.
