The Mental Health Services-Census Data Integration project used statistical techniques to link person-records from a selected subset of data items from the Medical Benefits Schedule (MBS) and Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme (PBS) to the 2011 Census of Population and Housing to create the Mental Health Services-Census Dataset, 2011. This publication provides a cross-section of key results from the linked dataset. It provides an overview of selected social and economic characteristics of people using subsidised mental health-related services and subsidised prescription medication including the type of services or medication these people are accessing.
