Section 1.4 includes a brief historical narrative to help put the information in the report into context.

COAG TARGETS AND HEADLINE INDICATORS 4.17 Future directions in data There is limited information on the under-coverage of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander identification in mortality data. Following the release of the 2010-2012 life tables, the ABS examined the quality of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander identification in deaths data, including a national analysis by age, which showed that the identification rate for 014 year olds (0.83) was similar to the national all-age identification rate (0.82) (ABS 2013b). Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander child mortality rates are not available by remoteness. ABS has advised that further analysis is required to determine what adjustments are required for performance reporting purposes. The ABS has published some unadjusted data in Deaths Australia, 2014, but these data should be used with caution, as the under-identification of Indigenous status in deaths registrations increases as remoteness decreases (ABS 2013a).
