About the measure: This measure is calculated quarterly and shows the average number of weeks to house households assessed as 'Priority' applicants (Public housing only).

Assessment is based on the Housing Assessment Prioritisation System (HAPS) which was introduced as part of Housing Connect in June 2015.

Erratum: In February 2016 the value for the September 2015 quarter was published as 38 weeks. In April 2016 this was revised to correct a rounding error.

About the measure: Notification in this measure is a counting unit of reports of suspected acts or risks of child abuse, neglect or harm (event) such that one notification is one unique event for one unique child. Notifications are referred following an initial assessment. This measure only counts those notifications which are initially assessed as requiring an investigation. Notifications are recorded for the month in which they are received, not the month in which they are referred. Some referrals are made in months subsequent to the month when the notification was received. Published figures are revised to account for this.

About the data: Data may vary from that previously published due to data reporting practices.

About the measure: This indicator measures the number of children who were placed in overnight care away from their usual home. Out-of-home care only includes placements for which the State made or offered a financial payment, in accordance with the national definition (see page 45 of Child protection Australia 2013-14). However, it excludes children not under care and protection orders in the Supported Extended Family Program or whose carers receive the Relatives Allowance.

About the data: Data may vary from that previously published due to data reporting practices.

Erratum: Data published in February 2016 did not include all children in out-of-home care in the months of July, August and September 2015. In April 2016 the data was revised to include these children.
