Assured Income for the Severely Handicapped (AISH) Caseload

Description

This CSS dataset describes the monthly Assured Income for the Severely Handicapped (AISH) caseload in Alberta. The AISH program provides financial and health benefits to eligible adult Albertans with a permanent medical condition that prevents them from earning a living.

 

Caseloads are reported as the actual volume each month and by the Alberta government’s fiscal year. Depending on an individual’s situation, some AISH benefits may also be provided for a spouse or partner and dependent children.

 

Monthly caseloads are also shown as a portion of the entire Alberta population; and by gender, age, primary medical condition, family composition, employment participation and seven service delivery regions across the province.

Usage Considerations

The data presents active clients for a specific month and presents the monthly caseload from April 2008 to the present. This is reported as the number of active cases for the month or, if more than one month is selected, it will be the average of the time range.

 

Clients active over a period of months are counted in the totals for each month they were active. The level of financial benefits varies depending on each individual's situation.

 

Please note: North regions began separate reporting in March 2018. From November 2021, Caseload changes occurring as a result of North Central Region collapsing into North East Region will mean that we will no longer be reporting North Central data.
