Data and insights

The National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) is committed to providing free and open access to data through the public data releases on this website.

We do this to ensure that participants and their families and carers, researchers, advocates, policy makers and the general public, can find out more about Scheme operations.

  • Specialist Disability Accommodation
