Aged care funding in Australia: Who gets what?


The long life expectancy of an ageing Australian population poses signifcant demographic and fiscal challenges. In response to these challenges, the aged care sector has been subject to signficant recent policy reform. To date there has been limited data to examine service demand and funding arrangements at the individual consumer level. This project uses rich longitudinal survey data linked to administrative data on both health and aged care services to investigate the cost of providing aged care services, and how it interacts with the provision of health care.
