Disaggregation

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

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

  • age group (65-69, 70-74, 75-79, 80-84, 85 years and over)
  • Indigenous status
  • remoteness (Australian Standard Geographical Classification Remoteness Structure)
  • SEIFA IRSD quintiles

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.
