Collection and usage attributes
|Computation description:||Presentation: Crude and age-standardised rates, rate ratio and rate differences.|
|Computation:||1000 × (Numerator ÷ Denominator)|
|Numerator:||Number of hospital separations|
|Numerator data elements:|
|Denominator:||Population all ages|
|Denominator data elements:|
|Disaggregation data elements:|
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.
|Unit of measure:||Person|
Indicator conceptual framework
|Framework and dimensions:||Health Conditions|
Data source attributes
|Organisation responsible for providing data:||Australian Institute of Health and Welfare|
|Further data development / collection required:|
Data development is planned/underway to improve the quality of Indigenous identification in hospital administrative systems.
|Other issues caveats:|
Rates are directly age-standardised to the Australian population as at 30 June 2001.
Disaggregation by Indigneous status is Indigenous Australian's and other Australians (Non-Indigenous and not stated Indigenous status).
National estimates adjusted for under-identification will be reported.
