Comments:Help on this term

Most recent data available for 2014 Council of Australian Governments (COAG) Reform Council (CRC) report: 2011–12.

The scope of the National Hospital Morbidity Database (NHMD) is episodes of care for admitted patients in essentially all hospitals in Australia, including public and private acute and psychiatric hospitals, free-standing day hospital facilities, alcohol and drug treatment hospitals and dental hospitals.

For 2011-12 data, the 2011 SEIFA IRSD quintile and decile data will be produced using the Australian Standard Geography Classification geographical unit of Statistical Local Area.  In future years, these data will be produced using the Australian Statistical Geography Standard geographical unit of Statistical Area 2.
