Identifying and definitional attributes
|Metadata item type:||Indicator|
|Short name:||PI 03-Hospitalisation rates by principal diagnosis, 2011|
|Registration status:||Indigenous, Archived 01/07/2012|
|Description:||Hospital separation rates for leading principal diagnoses for Australians, by Indigenous status.|
|Rationale:||Monitoring hospitalisation rates for different diseases so that it is understood which diseases are major contributors to morbidity among Indigenous Australians and where programs are succeeding and where they are not will assist in achieving the closing the gap targets.|
|Indicator set:||National Indigenous Reform Agreement (2011) Indigenous, Archived 01/07/2012|
|Outcome area:||Indigenous Australians achieve health outcomes comparable to the broader population Indigenous, Endorsed 21/07/2010|
Collection and usage attributes
Crude rates are calculated for Indigenous Australians; age-standardised rates are calculated for Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians.
Rate ratios and rate differences are calculated for Indigenous:non-Indigenous.
Presentation: Per 1,000 persons; percentage; and causes listed from highest to lowest percentage.
Leading principal diagnoses (and ICD-10-AM codes) are:
Crude percentage: number of separations by principal diagnosis divided by total separations.
Rate: 1,000 x (Numerator ÷ Denominator).
|Numerator:||Number of hospital separations (public and private).|
|Numerator data elements:|
|Denominator:||Total population of all people|
|Denominator data elements:|
For Indigenous only (crude rates):
For Indigenous and non-Indigenous (age standardised rates):
|Disaggregation data elements:|
Most recent data available for 2011 CRC report is 2008-09.
National disaggregation by Indigenous status will be based on data only from jurisdictions for which the quality of Indigenous identification is considered acceptable.
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 public hospitals. Tas/ACT data should be reported with caveats. National rates should include these six states and territories only.
Rates are directly age standardised to the 2001 Australian ERP.
National estimates adjusted for under-identification will be reported for leading principal diagnoses.
Disaggregation by Indigenous status is to be reported using 2 years combined data for the current reporting period. Single year data is to be reported for time series.
Baseline year for this indicator is 2006; target year is 2031.
