Interactive RMHC: Four interactive figures showing data related to residential mental health care to 2018-19. Figure 1 is a line chart showing the number or rate (per 10,000 population) of episodes of care, number of residents or care days in each jurisdiction from 2005–06 to 2018–19. Tasmania had the highest rate of residents in all years except 2013–14, with a rate of 9.9 in 2018–19, compared to 2.5 for the whole of Australia. Figure 2 is a horizontal bar chart showing the rate (per 10,000 population), per cent or number of people accessing residential mental health care by demographic variables of age group, sex, Indigenous status, country of birth, remoteness area and SEIFA quintile in 2018–19. Indigenous Australians accessed care at more than twice the  rate (5.7) of non-Indigenous Australians (2.4). Figure 3 is a stacked vertical bar chart and line chart showing the per cent of care episodes with a voluntary or involuntary mental health legal status for each jurisdiction from 2008–09 to 2018–19. The Australian Capital Territory had the highest per cent of care episodes with an involuntary status, at 60.0% in 2018–19, compared to 19.3% for the whole of Australia. Figure 4 is a horizontal line chart showing the per cent or number of residential mental health care episodes with particular principal diagnoses in 2018–19. The most common diagnosis was Schizophrenia with 25.1% of episodes.
