Latest public data release

We have released another round of NDIA data, as part of our public data release schedule which includes:

  • a deep dive report into ‘Participants with acquired brain injury, cerebral palsy or spinal cord injury in the NDIS’
  • updated market data as at 31 December 2020
  • updated existing downloadable and interactive data previously released using 31 December 2020 data

Our data releases are part of our commitment in the Participant Service Charter to be transparent, they provide detailed insights and reports into specific areas, including participant outcomes, market data, and deep dives into particular groups of participants (for example, disability type or age group). 

Participants with acquired brain injury, cerebral palsy or spinal cord injury in the NDIS

Of more than 430,000 active NDIS participants:

  • 14,013 (3.2 per cent) have a primary disability of acquired brain injury
  • 16,184 (3.7 per cent) have a primary disability of cerebral palsy
  • 4,914 (1.1 per cent) have a primary disability of spinal cord injury

Participants with acquired brain injury, spinal cord injury or cerebral palsy have the highest average plan values across all disabilities in the NDIS. 

The participation rates for people with acquired brain injury or spinal cord injury are highest in the Northern Territory. Tasmania has the highest participation rate for people with cerebral palsy.

The report shows positive results, such as increases in social and community participation and increases in choice and control for all three groups. 

The report also shows areas where we can improve, such as creating opportunities for employment. We will keep working to achieve better outcomes and experiences for these participants and their families and carers.

Refreshed market data

Releasing the NDIS Market Report is part of our commitment to sharing specialist data (see Reports and analyses ). These reports are in addition to the comprehensive Quarterly reports and help providers better understand market trends.

The report compares a number of market indicators across geographical regions and participant characteristics, and identifies “hot spots” where support provision is comparatively lower or higher than the rest of the NDIS market.

The refreshed NDIS market dashboards provide information and indicators on the NDIS market by region and local government areas using updated data as of 31 December 2020.
