LGA15 Health Workforce - Medical, Nursing, Dental Professionals - 2011

The number of people in the health workforce and the rate of specified health workers per 100,000 population, 2011. The health workforce is divided into the following categories: General Medical Practitioners, Specialist Practitioners, Unknown/Not applicable Medical Practitioners, Registered Nurses only, Registered Nurses who are also Midwives, Total Registered Nurses, Enrolled Nurses, Midwives, Total Nurses, Dentists, and Total Dental Practitioners (all entries that were classified as not shown, not published or not applicable were assigned a null value; no data was provided for Maralinga Tjarutja LGA, in South Australia). The data is by LGA 2015 profile (based on the LGA 2011 geographic boundaries). For more information on statistics used please refer to the PHIDU website, available from: Note: Total Medical Practitioners may not equal the sum of General Practitioners, Total Specialists (excluding General Practitioners) and Unknown/ not available specialties. This is because of the slight difference in how General Practitioners are defined in the two instances. Source: Compiled by PHIDU based on data from the National Health Workforce Dataset (NHWDS), jointly owned by Health Workforce Australia (HWA) and the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare (AIHW), 2011; and the ABS Estimated Resident Population, 30 June 2011.
