The Disability Services National Minimum Data Set (DS NMDS) is a national data collection undertaken by Australian States, Territories and the Commonwealth to provide a range of information about the provision of specialist disability services in Australia.
Information derived from the DS NMDS collection is available within a number of national publications including Disability Support Services (AIHW) and the Report on Government Services (Productivity Commission).
A key use of DS NMDS data within Tasmania is to assist with the development of services for people with disability.
