This study aims to understand the health status and health service use of people receiving the DSP. 

We used data from the National Health Survey to compare the health of DSP recipients to that of other working age Australians. 

The study answers questions such as:

  • How do people on DSP rate their own health?

  • What types of medical conditions and disabilities to people on the DSP report? 

  • What sorts of healthcare do people on the DSP receive?

  • Are people on the DSP more likely to be hospitalised and how often are they admitted to hospital?
