C07. Clients by Funding Category


Previously known as: CC7 Clients by Funding Category – Specific Project

Report Type: Standard

Purpose:  C07 shows the number of clients in selected demographic criteria, and the kinds of parent funding categories that have been attached to the services provided to those clients (and how many times those funding categories have been selected, for that pool of clients).

For example, selecting Gender as Female and Yes to Indigenous Australian from the filter panel will narrow down the number of Total Selected Clients and consequently the number of Services attached to those Clients. Then, the number of services provided to this pool of clients (indigenous women) will be further broken down according to different types of funding categories selected in assisting these clients. The diagram below can be clicked on for a larger view:  

The Venn Diagram above shows:

  1. How the Total Clients can be narrowed down via Demographic Filter (All Clients – Clients who are female – Clients who are female and indigenous);
  2. If there are three clients who meet the selected criteria (female and indigenous), Total Client Selection will be 3;
  3. Client 1 has two Services attached herself – one Service delivered via Indigenous Women’s Outreach Project (funding category), and another via Women’s Services (funding category);
  4. Client 2 has one Service delivered via Indigenous Women’s Outreach Project (funding category);
  5. Client 3 has one Service delivered via Rural Women’s Outreach Project (funding category);
  6. As a result, in the report generated from this selection of Demographic Filter, one can expect to see: (1) 3 in Total Selection Client, (2) 2 in Indigenous Women’s Outreach Project, (3) 1 in Women’s Services, and (4) 1 in Rural Women’s Outreach Project.


Filters available in this report

This report can be ‘filtered’ so that the results are limited to data that meets the criteria chosen in the filter panel. The filters available for this report are

  • Date Range
  • Funding Categories – Choose all, one or several Funding categories
  • Catchment –  The Catchment chosen will determine which centres will be shown. 
  • Demographic information – Gender, Age Groups, Financial Disadvantage, Income Level,  Family Living With Dependant Children, Disability and or Mental Illness, Indigenous Australian, Outer Regional and Remote Clients, Homelessness, Client Type, New Clients, Interpreter Translator Required, Main Language Spoken At Home Not English, Family Violence. 

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.
  • This report does NOT show all the funding categories available, at the exclusion of centre level custom funding categories and state-specific funding categories. In other words, C07 only shows the funding categories shared by all states and all centres. This is because the report is primarily intended for use by State Program Managers. 
  • 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.
  • If multiple problem types are attached to a service, this will cause the sum figure of law type columns (Family Law, Civil Law, and Criminal Law) to be more than the figure of Total Clients in Selection.
  • 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, default setting for all the drop-down options are “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.
  • Selecting “Yes” for Homeless indicator only captures data that is mapped to the response “Yes.” The report will not include responses that are mapped to “Unknown” or “At risk of.”

Note that adding up all the funding category columns do NOT add up to Total Selection Client.
 This is because funding categories are attached to Services, and there could be multiple Services attached to a client. It is anticipated that adding up these funding category columns would yield higher figure than the Total Selection Client.
