This website is the home of the National Disability Insurance Agency’s (NDIA) data and research outputs. 

We provide detailed information and data about the NDIS on this website. We do this to make sure participants, their families and carers, advocates, researchers, policy makers and the general public can find out more about the Scheme and how it is working.

We also conduct and publish research and evaluations to support positive participant outcomes by ensuring policies, practices and priorities are informed by trustworthy and robust evidence.

OurResearch and Evaluation Strategy 2022 to 2027 details our research and evaluation focus and explains how we use this evidence to improve the NDIS.
