Section 1.1 describes the origins of the report, and section 1.2 describes its key objectives. Section 1.3 provides contextual information on the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander population. Section 1.4 includes a brief historical narrative to help put the information in the report into context.

TABLE 6A.6.17 Table 6A.6.17 Unit NSW Qld WA (i) SA NT Total (j) NSW Qld WA (i) SA NT Total (j) Deaths from external causes and preventable diseases for children aged 04 years, by Indigenous status, NSW, Queensland, WA, SA, NT, 20032007 (a), (b), (c), (d), (e), (f), (g) Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Non-Indigenous (h) (i) (j) (k) (l) (m) (n) Source : ABS (unpublished) Causes of Death, Australia, 2012; ABS (2014) Estimates and Projections, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians 2001-2026 , Cat. no. 3238.0; ABS (2012) Australian Demographic Statistics, June 2012 , Cat. no. 3101.0. Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander data for Western Australia were not published in Causes of Death, Australia, 2010 (cat. no. 3303.0) due to investigations being undertaken regarding the volatility of this data. Subsequently, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander deaths data in WA for the years 2007, 2008 and 2009 were adjusted to correct for potential over-reporting in this period. This data was released on 22 June, 2012 in Causes of Death, Australia, 2010 (cat. no. 3303.0). This adjusted data has been included in this table. Total includes data for NSW, Queensland, WA, SA and the NT only. These five states and territories have been included due to there being evidence of sufficient levels of identification and sufficient numbers of deaths to support mortality analysis. See table 6A.6.16 for ICD-10 codes included in 'External Causes and Preventable Diseases'. Crude rates calculated per 100 000 Estimated Resident Population for children aged less than 5 years for the average of the period 2003-2007. Denominators used in the calculation of rates for the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander population are Experimental Estimates and Projections, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians (ABS Cat. no. 3238.0, series B, 2011 base). There are no comparable population data for the non-Indigenous population. Denominators used in the calculation of rates for comparison with the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander population have been derived by subtracting Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander population estimates/projections from total estimated resident population and should be used with care, as these data include population units for which Indigenous status were not stated. Variability bands can be be used for comparisons within jurisdictions (for cause of death or over time), but not between jursidictions or between jurisdictions and totals.
