Plan budgets and socio-economic status report
The 30 June 2021 Quarterly Report to Disability Ministers included a chart that analysed plan budgets by socio-economic status.
The analysis indicated that on average, participants in the highest socio-economic decile received plan budgets that were 9% higher than participants in the lowest socio-economic decile
This new report takes that analysis further by looking at the distribution of plan budgets within each socio-economic decile – specifically, looking the 5th, 10th, 25th, 50th (median), 75th, 90th and 95th percentiles.
