Issues for causes of death data:

    • A balance needs to be maintained between accuracy (completeness) and timeliness, taking account of the different needs of users.
    • Causes of death statistics are released with a view to ensuring that they are fit for purpose when released. Supporting documentation for causes of death statistics are published and should be considered when interpreting the data to enable the user to make informed decisions on the relevance and accuracy of the data for the purpose the user is going to use those statistics.
    • The availability of information from the administrative system to support processing will depend on the reasons for the system, timeliness requirements imposed by legislation or the system, resourcing of the administrative system.
    • To meet user requirements for timely data it is often necessary to obtain information from the administrative source before all information for the reference period is available (e.g. finalisation of coronial proceedings).
