RESPIRATORY DISEASES (J00-J99)

Diseases of the Respiratory System (J00-J99) were the underlying cause of death for 194 Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander persons in 2010, accounting for 7.5% of deaths.

The most common type of respiratory disease that contributed to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander deaths were Chronic Lower Respiratory Diseases (J40-J47), which were the underlying cause of death for 115 Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander persons. The age standardised death rate for Chronic Lower Respiratory Diseases was three times higher (rate ratio of 3.0) for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians compared with non-Indigenous Australians (74.6 and 24.8).
