Comments:Help on this term

Disaggregation: National and selected state/territories by Indigenous status, by principal diagnosis at the ICD-10-AM chapter level.

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

At this stage, only selected state/territories are considered of accepted quality for reporting hospitalisations of Indigenous persons (NSW, Vic, Qld, WA, SA & NT). National rates are to be reported for these six jurisdictions combined.

Disaggregation by Indigenous status is reported using a 2 year rolling average due to small numbers.
