GEN Aged Care Data

The AIHW and the Department of Health have worked together to develop GEN as part of continuous quality improvement for the NACDC.

The National Aged Care Data Clearinghouse (NACDC) holds data for all recipients of government–funded aged care from 1997 onwards, including prior activity data for those in care in 1997.

The data mostly relate to government–funded aged care programs operating under the Aged Care Act 1997. These include care delivery programs (residential aged care, home care, and transition care) and assessment programs under the Act (ACAP and ACFI). Some programs not covered by the Act are also included, such as the Commonwealth Home Support Programme (formally the Commonwealth Home and Community Care Program).

GEN gives access to the data and information.

Australian Bureau of Statistics: Marriage Law Postal Survey

Dear Residential aged care provider,

The Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) is surveying all Australians on the Commonwealth Electoral Roll to get their views about whether the law should be changed to allow same sex couples to marry.

This is a voluntary survey. However, the ABS would like every eligible Australian to have an opportunity to participate and have their say. While it is expected that most eligible people in Australia will be able to participate using the postal service, the ABS will implement a number of additional strategies for people who may not be able to complete a postal survey.

Residents of Aged Care facilities may complete the survey independently through the postal service, by requesting the assistance of someone they trust, or through a paperless response.

“This is the latest example of the Turnbull Government’s commitment to aged care transparency and making life easier for older Australians,” the Minister said.

“The GEN website uses easy to understand language and illustrations to report on capacity and activity in the aged care system, including people’s care needs, assessments and the services they use.

“It is designed to cater for all levels of users, from aged care residents to academics and service providers seeking high quality data and analysis.”
