Usage Considerations

People in ‘active caseload’ have a completed outcome plan and are receiving PDD services. They may receive a variety of services such as home living, employment, community access or specialized community supports. The data goes back to June 2018 for Albertans who met PDD eligibility criteria and were accessing PDD services. Data prior to June 2018 is included in the PDD Historical Caseload open dataset which covers the period April 2010 to May 2018.


The PDD monthly caseload count is based on an average count for the reference month and the 11 previous months. Individuals are counted when an invoice for services is paid in the month. This method is used to address monthly invoicing fluctuations for a more accurate reflection of the number of individuals receiving services.


Please Note: Provincial total may not equal summation of the regional case counts. Individuals may receive services in more than one region. Provincial number is an overall unique count.
