The ARIA provides an indicator of the accessibility of services by locality. This document contains links to the index as at 1 July 1999.
The ARIA is used to assess the remoteness of the location of a care recipient's home. ARIA is a precise measure of the accessibility of all geographical locations in Australia. It scores and classifies each location into one of five groups:
- highly accessible
- moderately accessible
- very remote.
The rate of viability supplement for community care will be based on the ARIA score of the care recipient’s location.
