We anticipate a change to the title of this report to better reflect its purpose, as the current title ‘Clients by Geographical Area’ comes from CLSIS and is no longer considered an accurate description of what this report does. This report divides Clients by the different categories from the ‘Remoteness Area’ Administrative Boundary that is maintained by the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS). More information about the structure of ‘Remoteness Area’ boundaries can be found at the ABS here.
Clients without a Remoteness Area CLASS geotag are excluded, and that is the reason this report may have a lower total to similar reports such as C03 during the same time period.
Additionally, there will be further formula testing to verify the Total Count. However, we can confirm that adding up Outer Regional + Remote Centre + Very Remote counts in C05 should add up to Outer Regional & Remote Clients in C03 report. Until further tests are completed, CLASS users are encouraged to use other reports when possible because the rest of C (client) reports have been rigorously tested and are expected to generate more reliable data.
In C05, adding up 41 (Outer Regional) + 10 (Remote Centre) + 8 (Very Remote) yields 59. This is consistent with the result shown in C03 as seen below.
