Under the National Health Information Agreement, to which the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS), the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare (AIHW), Australian Government Department of Health and Ageing (DoHA), and the various state and territory health authorities are signatories, the National Health Information Development Plan sets out agreed national priorities for health information to be considered by the Australian Health Ministers' Advisory Council.

Data in this chapter are obtained from the most up-to-date sources available, including information on the health status of Australians collected in the 2004-05 National Health Survey (NHS), and the 2003 Survey of Disability, Ageing and Carers (SDAC) conducted by the ABS, and data from the ABS Causes of Death collection. Previous health surveys were conducted in 1989-90, 1995 and 2001.

Data from the 2004-05 NHS in this chapter are presented using the International Classification of Diseases, 10th revision (ICD-10).
