Originally developed for the Care Services Efficiency Delivery Programme (CSED), part of the Department of Health, this system provides population data by age band, gender, ethnic group, and by disability living allowance, incapacity benefits, and guardianship for English local authorities.

Prevalence rates from research have been used to estimate the impact of: learning disability, including living with a parent, Down's syndrome, challenging behaviour, autistic spectrum disorders; moderate or serious physical disability including personal care, stroke, diabetes, visual impairment and hearing impairment; mental health problems including depression, neurotic, personality and psychotic disorders, drugs and alcohol, suicide, adult survivors of childhood sexual abuse and early onset dementia.

Finally, nationally available performance data on individual budgets/self directed support/direct payments and supported residents in care homes, are applied to the projected population figures.
