The main feature of the contribution is a survey of the economic and financial performance of aged care entities not hitherto attempted. Most attention is directed to labour costs in relation to total costs and earnings before interest and taxes. Cross-section analyses are based on institutional differences between providers of services. Locational differences are also examined. The results show great disparities between providers of aged care services.

There are implications for development of new approaches to policy
