Data source attributes
|Reporting requirements:||National Healthcare Agreement|
|Organisation responsible for providing data:||Australian Bureau of Statistics|
|Further data development / collection required:|
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.
Further data development is required to accurately estimate the prevalence of asthma. Ideally this indicator would be related to the number of people with moderate to severe asthma, but this number is not known with any degree of accuracy.
|Other issues caveats:|
Disaggregations within individual jurisdictions are subject to data quality considerations.
The scope of collections is 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.
