|Population group age from:||0 years|
|Population group age to:||4 years|
|Computation description:||Presented as number of deaths per 100,000 population|
100,000 × (Numerator ÷ Denominator)
Variability bands are to be calculated for rates using the following method for estimating 95% confidence intervals:
where d = number of deaths in the relevant age-group.
|Numerator:||Number of deaths among children aged 0–4 years|
|Numerator data elements:|
|Denominator:||Population aged 0–4 years|
|Denominator data elements:|
2007, 2008, 2009 (resupplied for revision to ABS WA and national Indigenous deaths data), 2010 (supplied for Indigenous status), 2011—Nationally, by Indigenous status.
Some disaggregations may result in numbers too small for publication. Disaggregation by Indigenous status will be based on data only from jurisdictions for which the quality of Indigenous identification is considered acceptable - NSW, Qld, WA, SA and NT.
|Disaggregation data elements:|
Most recent data available for 2013 CRC report: 2011.
A system error affected the reporting of WA Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander death registrations for 2007, 2008 and 2009 which affected the WA and national death rates reported for the 2011 and 2012 CRC reports. These data have been revised for 2013 reporting.
Further details (including data for 2002–06) are available from the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Performance Framework (Indicator 1.19).
For further detailed analysis by Indigenous status see the National Indigenous Reform Agreement (NIRA) report.
