Aged Care Census Database
The Aged Care Census Database is the source for much of the data contained within the Workforce Narrative. The database has been compiled by organisational culture survey specialists, BPA Analytics.
The database comprises over 130,000 respondents from 70 providers recorded over the past 20 years. This includes residential aged care and community care, along with public and private aged care, not-for-profit and for-profit providers.
It is a compelling database, the only one of its kind in Australia. Access to the database enables the user to gain, and compare for themselves, critical insights into organisational culture within the aged care sector.
Limited access to the database is available for free. For those wanting to drill deeper into the data, BPA Analytics offers an additional level of access on a fee for service basis. Find out more by visiting the BPA website.
