Further data development / collection required:Help on this termSpecification: Long-term
The quality of Indigenous identification needs to be assessed.
Other issues caveats:Help on this termRemoteness area and SEIFA of residence are based on residential address at the time of screening.

Disaggregation by Indigenous status, remoteness area and SEIFA of residence within individual states/territories is subject to data quality considerations.

Recommendations from the current Evaluation of BreastScreen Australia may result in changes to how participation is reported in the future as well as identifying any data development required.
