95% Confidence intervals and relative standard errors are calculated for crude and age-standardised rates.
Rate ratios and rate differences are calculated for Indigenous: non-Indigenous.
Presentation: Number, rate per 100 persons (percentage), rate ratio, rate difference, confidence intervals, and relative standard error.
Crude rate: 100 x (Numerator ÷ Denominator).
Age-standardised rate: calculated using the direct method with the 2001 Australian population as at 30 June as the standard. Ten year age groups are used from 0-4 to 55 years and over to be consistent with published estimates by the ABS.
Rate ratio: Indigenous age-standardised rate divided by non-Indigenous age-standardised rate.
Rate difference: Indigenous age-standardised rate minus non-Indigenous age-standardised rate.
