AIHW - Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) - Deaths by Sex (PHA) 2011-2015

This dataset presents the statistics of deaths caused by chronic kidney disease (CKD) distributed by sex for the years between 2011-2015. The data is and is aggregated to the 2011 Public Health Information Development Unit (PHIDU) Population Health Areas (PHA), based on the 2011 Australian Statistical Geography Standard (ASGS).

The CKD datasets were released by the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare (AIHW) to present data on prevalence, treatment (hospitalisations for CKD and dialysis) and deaths. It shows the distribution of the impact of CKD across Australia and visualises rates of CKD and the health and demographic profile for local areas.

The data was modelled by the AIHW from the National Mortality Database (NMD) and includes data supplied by the Registries of Births, Deaths and Marriages, the Coroners and the National Coroners Information System and coded by the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS).

Please note:

  • AURIN has spatially enabled the original data using the PHIDU - PHAs.: http://phidu.torrens.edu.au/help-and-information/about-our-data/geographical-structures#population-health-areas
  • Where data has not been published due to small numbers, "n.p." in the original data, the value has been set to null.
  • Where values have been identified to have a relative root mean square error (RRMSE), a new column has been added where "*" presents an RRMSE between 25% and 50%. This data should be used with caution.
  • Year or period refers to the year of death registration.
  • Deaths have been combined over a 5 year period due to small numbers.
  • Death and population counts are annual averages for the 5-year period between 2011 and 2015. They were derived by dividing the total count for the period by 5. Rates are based on the combined deaths and populations over the 5-year period.
