In extracting data for the items in question only services involving patients who were 3, 4 or 5 years of age at the time of service will be tabulated.
Count children who receive both a health assessment and an Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people health assessment once only. Count children who have received more than one check (of either type) once only.
Brief, standard, long and prolonged health assessments are claimed under MBS Items 701, 703, 705, 707 respectively.
A health assessment provided by a practice nurse or registered Aboriginal health worker is claimed under MBS Item 10986
Health assessments involving Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples may be claimed under MBS Item 715.
Analysis by state/territory, remoteness and SEIFA Indicator of Relative Socio-economic Disadvantage (IRSD) is based on the postcode of residence of person as recorded by Medicare Australia at the date their last service was received in the reference period.

Some disaggregation may result in numbers too small for publication.
|Disaggregation data elements:
Most recent data available for 2012 CRC report: 2010–11
Data for MBS Items 701, 703, 705 and 707 include Indigenous children who receive these health assessments. It is therefore not possible to produce an Indigenous disaggregation.
MBS item numbers change over time. Extracted data may include historical item numbers that are no longer part of the MBS but have been processed by Medicare Australia within the reference period.
Indigenous Experimental Population Projections are available by 5 year age group, not by single year of age. Estimates for Indigenous children aged 4 years old are used.
