Data and insights

The increasing maturity of the NDIA means we are collecting a lot of valuable data. This provides a picture of the needs, successes and challenges for Australians who live with a disability and those who support them.

The NDIS is sharing this data in a range of formats including downloadable reports and spreadsheets, analysis and presentations. As new information becomes available it will be added to the website. More features will also be added, including data visualisation tools which will make it easier to use the data available. 

We invite you to explore this data to further your own knowledge of the disability sector, its achievements and challenges, and the way the NDIS is working to create a more accessible and inclusive society.
