Presents statistics on the number of deaths by state or territory of Australia, sex, selected age groups, and cause of death classified to the World Health Organisation's International Classification of Diseases (ICD). Version 10 of the ICD has been introduced from 1999. Major causes are also shown as a proportion of total deaths and as age-specific death rates. Prior to 1997, death information is available for underlying cause only, while from 1997 onwards, information relating to multiple causes is also available.
Details of perinatal deaths are included from 1994 to 1996 based on the 500 gram/22 weeks gestation definition, while from 1997, the 400 gram/20 week gestation definition is used.
