Specification: Long-term

Disaggregations within individual jurisdictions are subject to data quality considerations. 

Self-reported data, particularly by parents about their children, are unreliable, and the sample size from these surveys is such that it will be difficult to pick up statistically significant changes over time, particularly at a jurisdictional level.

See the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Performance Framework 1.12 for further detail.
