Comments:Help on this term

Disaggregation: Principal diagnosis at chapter level: National, selected state/territories and sex by Indigenous status.

Most recent data available for 2010 CRC baseline report: 2007-08

At this stage, only data from selected state/territories are considered of acceptable quality for reporting hospitalisations of Indigenous persons (NSW, Vic, Qld, WA, SA & NT).

Disaggregation by Indigenous status is reported using 2 years combined data due to small numbers.
