Participant outcomes report

'Baseline outcomes for NDIS participants 30 June 2020' summarises baseline results for NDIS participants entering the Scheme during the four year period from 1 July 2016 to 30 June 2020.

'Longitudinal outcomes for NDIS participants 30 June 2020' summarises longitudinal outcomes for participants who have been in the Scheme for one year or more at 30 June 2020.

Where relevant, the baseline and the longitudinal reports have analysed the impact of COVID-19 on outcome indicators.

Two previous reports have covered both baseline and longitudinal experience, as at 30 June 2018 and 30 June 2019.

Leveraging research conducted by the NDIS Independent Advisory Council (IAC), the outcomes framework takes a lifespan approach to the measurement of outcomes.

There are four different versions of the outcomes framework questionnaires, corresponding to four participant age groups. 

The reports are organised with separate chapters for each age cohort, drawing together analyses from all data sources.

High level summaries of results for all questions are included in separate volumes of appendices. Data shown in the appendices are included as csv files in zipped format.

On this page you can download the full report or download individual chapters and appendices.
