Industry Profile 2017-2018

The NZACA has released a report titled the Aged Residential Care Industry Profile 2017-18 within which is the most comprehensive report on the state of the aged residential care industry.

It is compiled from NZACA’s own Member Profiling Survey that was carried out by Colmar Brunton in late 2017 and gives long-term trend analysis using data from previously published NZACA reports.

The ARC Industry Profile also includes results the adhoc surveys carried out by the NZACA that have informed pay equity discussions, advocacy work around the ARC workforce, and comprehensive bed statistics from the TAS Quarterly Bed Survey.

The high response rates that were received (60% to 70%) for these surveys mean the findings reported on are robust and representative of the entire ARC industry.
