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

The first round of National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) data has been released as part of the Morrison Government’s commitment to demonstrate full transparency of the NDIS.

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

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 outcomes data collected by 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 on the NDIS website: https://www.ndis.gov.au/about-us/data-and-insights/. All of the shared data is subject to strict privacy controls so that individuals cannot be identified.
