Victorian State Disability Plan 2017-2020


Our team was awarded the tender to develop measurable indicators for the Outcomes Framework of the Victorian State Disability Plan: Absolutely everyone.

The indicators cover a range of different domains of life and about one hundred different measures have been proposed to cover areas such as community participation, employment, safety and discrimination. We have used data from ABS surveys and other sources to estimate the measures. Where possible, we have compared outcomes between people with and without disability. This is the first time such a comprehensive range of indicators and measures have been developed for any level of government.

The indicators will help the government find out how well the Victorian Government is doing in meeting the aims of the State Disability Plan.
