Reporting requirements:Help on this termNational Healthcare Agreement
Organisation responsible for providing data:Help on this termAustralian Institute of Health and Welfare
Further data development / collection required:Help on this termSpecification: Long-term

A National Cervical Cancer Prevention Dataset is being developed by the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare (AIHW) to standardise data collection and reporting nationally.

An Indigenous identifier needs to be added to the collection - currently being investigated and in early stages of development in some jurisdictions.

Hysterectomy fractions are in the process of being updated for future reporting.
Other issues caveats:Help on this termRemoteness area and SEIFA of residence are based on postcode of residential address at the time of screening.

Hysterectomy fractions are derived from the 2001 National Health Survey (NHS).

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

Screening rates for Indigenous women in 2010 reporting are to be based on survey data, not administrative data.

Aggregated data only are supplied to the AIHW for this indicator.
