Collection and usage attributes
|Population group age from:||Women aged 20 years|
|Population group age to:||Women aged 69 years|
|Computation description:||The denominator is adjusted to exclude the estimated number of women who have had a hysterectomy, using national hysterectomy fractions.
Rates are directly age-standardised to the Australian population as at 30 June 2001, expressed per 100 persons.
|Computation:||100 × (Numerator ÷ Denominator)|
|Numerator:||Number of women aged 20–69 years who have undergone cervical screening in a 2 year period|
|Numerator data elements:|
|Denominator:||Total female population aged 20–69 years|

|Disaggregation data elements:|
|Comments:||Specified disaggregation: Nationally and by state/territory: by remoteness area and SEIFA of residence. Rates for Indigenous women only nationally and by state/territory.
Available disaggregation: Nationally: by remoteness area and SEIFA of residence. Rates for Indigenous women only nationally and by state/territory.

Data source attributes
|Reporting requirements:||National Healthcare Agreement|
|Organisation responsible for providing data:||Australian Institute of Health and Welfare|
|Further data development / collection required:||Specification: 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:||Remoteness 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.
