The annual Report on Government Services (ROGS) is produced by the Steering Committee for the Review of Government Service Provision. It details an agreed set of performance indicators and data for these indicators, for each jurisdiction (where possible). These indicators assist governments to assess the performance of the services provided in their jurisdiction.
The ROGS draws statistical data together to provide information, through key indicators, on the performance of specified government agencies and programs in delivering services to the Australian people. The report is used for strategic budget and policy planning and evaluation and is broken down into various chapters across six broad service areas: 'Early Childhood, Education and Training', 'Justice', 'Emergency Management', 'Health', 'Community Services' and 'Housing'.
The Early Childhood, Education and Training section comprises three chapters: 'Children's Services', 'School Education' and 'Vocational Education and Training', also contains a substantial Preface with attachment tables. Besides the preface, chapter content and supporting tables, further education data are provided in the Statistical Appendix to the ROGS.
The report, first published in December 1995, is published annually. A compendium of Indigenous data compiled from the report, has also published since 2003. These publications are available via the Productivity Commission website http://www.pc.gov.au/:
Report on Government Services (ROGS) available at the end of each January.
Report on Government Services: Indigenous Compendium available around April or May each year.
