Data confidence level:
This FACT indicates the number of disability services and support organizations per 100,000 people in each Australian city. Services and support for people with disabilities are those government or other institutional services and supports specifically provided to enable people with disabilities to fully participate in society and community life. Some such services and support organisations are mandated or required by law, some are assisted by technologies that have made it easier to provide the service or support, and others are commercially available not only to persons with disabilities, but to everyone who might make use of them. The data for this indicator was collected by looking at the Yellow Pages online directory (for 2013). Each disability service and support organization was individually counted to get more accurate results. Although the Yellow Pages is not the most accurate source of data, it is still able to provide an estimated value. The city with the highest number of disability services and support organisations was Hobart, at 54.33 per 100,000 people. The city with the lowest was Perth, at 27.19 per 100,000 people.
