Data source attributes
|Reporting requirements:||National Healthcare Agreement|
|Organisation responsible for providing data:||Australian Bureau of Statistics|
|Further data development / collection required:||Specification: Interim
Mechanisms for reporting annually in between surveys are being explored. There is scope for improved capacity in jurisdictions depending on the implementation plan for the National Partnership Agreement on Preventive Health.The NHMRC guidelines for alcohol consumption have been revised (2009) and now reflect lifetime risk. The specification for this indicator may be updated to reflect the 2009 guidelines in future reporting.
|Other issues caveats:||Disaggregations within individual jurisdictions are subject to data quality considerations. Some disaggregations may result in numbers too small for publication.
Scope of collections limited to persons usually resident in private dwellings. Persons usually resident in non-private dwellings such as hotels, motels, hospitals, nursing homes and short-stay caravan parks were not included in the surveys. Estimates for non-Indigenous people estimates exclude those living in very remote areas of Australia.Quality statements should note that data from non-private dwellings (e.g. hospitals, prisons, nursing homes) are excluded from household surveys.
