Disaggregations within individual jurisdictions are subject to data quality considerations. Some disaggregations may result in numbers too small for publication. Disaggregation by Indigenous status will be based on data only from jurisdictions for which the quality of Indigenous identification is considered acceptable.

Due to small number of Indigenous deaths reported each year, 5 year combined data will be reported for the current reporting period.

Further details (including data for 2002–06) available from the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Performance Framework (Indicator 1.22 and 1.23).

For further detailed analysis by Indigenous status, see the National Indigenous Reform Agreement (NIRA) report.

Most recent data available for 2011 CRC report: 2007 (updated due to revision of ABS cause of death data) and 2008.

Aggregated data (2003–2007) (updated due to revision of causes of death data for 2007, and to provide national totals based on five jurisdictions only). Aggregated data (2004-2008) will be reported for the current reporting period.
