Computation description:Help on this term

Injury and poisoning diagnoses are defined by ICD-10-AM codes S00-T98.

Rates are directly age-standardised to the 2001 Australian population.

Analysis by state and territory is based on location of service.

Analysis by remoteness and SEIFA Index of Relative Socioeconomic Disadvantage (IRSD) is based on usual residence of person.

Presented per 1,000 population.

Disaggregation:Help on this term

2009–10—Nationally, by SEIFA Index of Relative Socioeconomic Disadvantage (IRSD) deciles

2007–08 (requested by COAG Reform Council) and 2009–10—Nationally, by remoteness and sex

2007–08 (resupplied for revised Indigenous and SEIFA analysis), and 2009–10—State and territory, by:

  • sex
  • Indigenous status
  • remoteness (Australian Standard Geographical Classification Remoteness Structure)
  • SEIFA IRSD quintiles
  • age group (0–14; 15–24; 25–34; 35–44; 45–54; 55–64; 65 years and over)

Some disaggregation may result in numbers too small for publication. National disaggregation by Indigenous status will be based on data only from jurisdictions for which the quality of Indigenous identification is considered acceptable.
