C03. Clients by Priority Group (custom)

Overview

Previously known as: CC3 Custom Client Demographics by Number

Report Type: Standard

Purpose:  This report presents totals of clients from 'priority groups,' in a similar manner to report C01, but this report can also be filtered by various kinds of demographic information, allowing the user to narrow down or customise one's search. i.e. If one wants to search for a number of female clients who are financially disadvantaged, and also in between the ages of 35-49, one can select such criteria (simultaneously) from the demographic filter that appears on the left side of the database. 

Display

The demographic criteria is shown at the top of the report

Columns Show:

  • High priority client groups identified by the National Partnership Agreement, then a further breakdown of those columns for applicable criteria such as gender, age, income, etc. 

Rows show:

  • The centre name and percentages of each criterion. Typically your centre or lots or centres determined by the catchment chosen.          

    Geolocation tool is now available in this report and it is accessible from the filter panel section of the report. Select "Aggregate by Administrative Boundary" in Aggregate. 

    Once the Aggregate has been set as "Aggregate by Administrative Boundary," it will trigger further options to appear under "Administrative Boundary Type."

The following should be considered when analysing this report

  • This report counts unique clients.
  • Priority groups are identified by various fields in CLASS. Some of these are on the Client record, e.g. date of birth and Indigenous status, and some of these are on the Service record, e.g. family violence indicator and disability status. 
  • Where a field is on the Service page, and the Client has more than one service relevant to the period, the report counts where any of these services meets the criteria. For example: Jo has had three Legal Advices in the same reporting period, and on 1 of those Legal Advices it is recorded that Jo was homeless. On the other 2 Legal Advices, Jo was not homeless. This report will count 1 client in the Homelessness Indicator.
  • Geographic data, i.e. Rural, Regional and Remote, is not yet included in the report. It will be added as soon as possible, and will be based on client primary address details.

For the demographic filter, the default setting for all the drop-down options is "Any." This means that the figures appearing in the report will capture all data in relation to those criteria. For example, if one leaves Gender field as "Any," the data captured will include all clients who are male, female and other.
