Comments:

This item categorises services by funding type to provide contextual information for the Report on Government Services (RoGS).

The presentation of preschool data in the RoGS is yet to be determined, but this item will allow preschool data from the National Early Childhood Education and Care Collection to be disaggregated by the service funding type (e.g if reporting the indicator ‘children enrolled in a preschool program’, data could be disaggregated by those enrolled in a service that is government funded, or those enrolled in a service that is privately funded only).
