This search engine is the best way to find what you're after in METEOR, if you know what you're looking for. However, if you aren't sure what you're looking for, we suggest browsing the collection.

If you are using METEOR without an account, your search can be restricted by metadata item type, the main types of registration statuses, and by registration authority. It is also possible to search on METEOR ID number directly. You can save items of interest by adding bookmarks.

If you are logged in to METEOR as a metadata developer, you will have some additional options to restrict the search by. In addition to metadata item type and registration authority, you can restrict your search to the full range of registration status options, change date and workgroup. If you need access as a metadata developer and haven't done the training yet, please contact us.

When you type into the search box, you will get autocomplete suggestions. This predictive text will help you see the METEOR entries that exist for the topic you're searching on, and make your searching process faster and easier.

METEOR has a great many filters. The options directly below the search text box provide ways of limiting your search to all of the 18 content types in METEOR (see Learn about metadata to view the full list), item creation dates, and item revision dates. The 'Topic' content type will search the 'non-database' pages in METEOR, and 'Help' will search all of the 'information' pop-up information boxes that are linked to each item.

  • Content Types (eg data element, glossary item, value domain, data quality statement, indicator, classification scheme)
  • Created or Revision Dates (eg Last hour, Today, This week, Last month, This year, and specific date ranges)

To search the 'non-metadata' content of the METEOR website, such as the pages explaining what metadata items are, restrict your search results to 'Topic'.

You can also sort the results of your search on a range of options:

  • Relevance
  • Most / Least recently created
  • Most / Least recently updated
  • Alphabetical order (A–Z or Z–A)

You can further narrow down your results with the results categories that appear on the left side of the screen. These are: Registration Authority Status (Standard, Incomplete, Candidate, Superseded), Registration Authorities, Content Type, Stewards, Registration Statuses, and Submitting Organisations.

The 'Clear' button resets the Search page.

If you need to get finely-tuned results, this search engine uses Lucene search syntax. You can restrict your search to the titles of items by using Name: Searchterm, for instance, or hide words such as 'for' from the search by using backslashes, for example: \for\. Use "quote marks" to get an exact match with a word.

You can also use asterisks * for a wildcard search, which allows the search engine to replace any content with the asterisk. The METEOR wildcard search requires a precise format. It can only be inserted inside or at the end of a word, with at least one letter next to it (but not at the front of a word). The wildcard standing in isolation will also not work. For instance, ca*e* will bring up results for 'care', 'category', 'calendar' and 'cancer', while *cer or cancer * will not bring up any results.

National Healthcare Agreement: P01-Proportion of babies born with low birth weight, 2010 QS

392476 | Quality Statement | Australian Institute of Health and Welfare
Birth weight is included in the Perinatal National Minimum Data Set (NMDS) and data are complete for over 99.9% of babies. This measure only includes births of at least 20 weeks gestation or 400 grams birthweight. It excludes multiple births and babies with unknown birthweight and the measure may therefore differ slightly from information presented in other publications on low birthweight. Since 2005, all jurisdictions provide information on Indigenous status of the mother in accordance with t...

The data used to calculate this indicator are from an administrative data collection designed for real-time surveillance of communicable diseases. Data are reportable under jurisdictional public health legislation. A major limitation of the notifications data is that, for most diseases, they represent only a proportion of the total cases occurring in the community, that is, only those cases for which health care was sought and a diagnosis made, followed by a notification to health authorities.

The Adult Vaccination Survey is a random, stratified, Computer Assisted Telephone Interview covering residential households in all parts of Australia. Only households with fixed-line telephones are included. Determining ‘fully vaccinated’ status is challenging because of the recommendations regarding initial and subsequent pneumococcal vaccination (which depend on an individual’s age and the age of initial vaccination (if any)).

This measure only includes births of at least 20 weeks gestation or 400 grams birthweight. It excludes multiple births and stillbirths and the measure may therefore differ slightly from information presented in other publications on low birthweight. The National Perinatal Data Collection (NPDC) includes information on the Indigenous status of the mother only. Since 2...

The 1982–2009 data files for New South Wales and the Australian Capital Territory were not available for inclusion in the 2009 version of the Australian Cancer Database (ACD). An extended delay with receipt of mortality data from the Council of Australian Registrars has meant that New South Wales and the Australian Capital Territory have not been able to close off their 2009 data sets. As a consequence 2009 cancer data for these jurisdictions is not available for reporting purposes. Therefore, t...

2010 incidence data for NSW and ACT were not available for inclusion in the 2010 version of the Australian Cancer Database (ACD). The development of the new NSW Cancer Registries system has resulted in a delay in processing incidence data for 2010 onwards.

The data used to calculate this indicator are from an administrative data collection designed for real-time surveillance of communicable diseases. Data are reportable under jurisdictional public health legislation. A major limitation of the notifications data is that, for most diseases, they represent only a proportion of the total cases occurring in the community, that is, only those cases for which health care was sought and a diagnosis made, followed by a notification to health authorities.

The quality of Indigenous identification in cancer registry data varies between jurisdictions. National disaggregation by Indigenous status is based on jurisdictions with adequate data quality (Western Australia, South Australia, Queensland, New South Wales and the Northern Territory). Even with adequate data quality, the small numbers behind many disaggregations means certain Indigenous data are not robust enough for meaningful comparisons.
