Variation by state/territory
This section presents a summary of geographical variation in the use of health services and residential respite care among people living with dementia by state and territory.
Data are only presented for states/territories with hospital data in the NIHSI linked data: New South Wales (NSW), Victoria, Queensland, South Australia, Tasmania and the Australian Capital Territory (ACT).
As health service use changes after a person enters permanent residential aged care, results are shown by whether people living with dementia were living in the community or living in permanent residential aged care.
See the Technical guide for more information on the study cohorts, geographies and services examined.
