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 These are: Registration Authority Status (Standard, Incomplete, Candidate, Superseded), Registration Authorities, Content Type, Stewards, Registration Statuses, and Submitting Organisations.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.

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.

This indicator estimates the incidence of end-stage kidney disease (ESKD) from linked mortality and Australia and New Zealand Dialysis and Transplant Registry (ANZDATA) data. It does not include people with ESKD who were not on the ANZDATA Registry and did not die in the reference period. The coding list used to estimate ESKD from mortality data is conservative. For disaggregation by State and Territory and Indigenous status, data have been reported for four aggregated years to ensure statisti...

The Adult Vaccination Survey is a random, stratified, Computer Assisted Telephone Interview survey 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 for two doses of pneumococcal vaccination, with the second dose given 5 years after the first dose. The overall quality of the estimates may be affected by survey respondents ability to recall vaccinat...

Remoteness and socioeconomic status are based on postcode of residential address at the time of screening, not the location of screening. State/Territory disaggregation by remoteness and socioeconomic status is subject to data quality considerations. Indigenous status data are only available at the national level as numbers are too small to provide meaningful comparison between jurisdictions.

500678 | Quality Statement | Australian Institute of Health and Welfare
The suspension of the National Bowel Cancer Screening Program (NBCSP) due to a fault in the Faecal Occult Blood Test (FOBT) kit, and the subsequent remediation process, greatly affected the Council of Australian Governments (COAG) participation rates for 2009 and 2010. This should be taken into account when comparing these years to previous or future COAG data for this indicator.

This is a proxy measure for the indicator as it only includes specialist services reimbursed through the Medicare system (for out-of-hospital private patients) and not specialist services provided in public hospital outpatient and other settings (which are not reimbursed through the Medicare system).

This indicator appears reliable at a national level. However, comparisons between jurisdictions and population groups may be problematic due to different population structures (including relative prevalence of Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes) which have not been accounted for in the calculation of this indicator. Compared with other jurisdictions, results for the Australian Capital Territory and Northern Territory appear to be less reliable, perhaps due to their smaller population and lower coverage...
