  • Nervous system diseases (G00-G99)
  • Other causes
  • All causes

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

Variability bands are to be calculated for single-year rates using the method below.

Presented per 100,000 population. Rate ratio calculated for Indigenous:non-Indigenous.

2007 (revised WA and national Indigenous deaths data), 2008, 2009 (updated for revision to ABS cause of death data, revised WA and national Indigenous deaths data), and 2010 — State and territory, by ICD-10 chapter for underlying cause of death (and total).

2006-2010 — State and territory, by major cause of death (and total) by Indigenous status.

Some disaggregation 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, SA, WA and NT.
