The Survey asked people about selected health services they may have used for their own health in the last 12 months, and the experiences they had with each service. All persons aged 15 years and over were asked whether they had:
General practitioners, medical specialists and dental professionals
Chapter 1 includes data on access and barriers to accessing general practitioners (GPs), medical specialists and dental professionals.
Hospital and emergency
Chapter 2 includes data on hospital and hospital emergency department admissions by frequency, treatment as a private or public patient and reasons for not seeing a GP.
Pathology and imaging
Chapter 3 includes data on pathology and imaging tests and their frequency and barriers to use.
Communication and satisfaction with health providers
Chapter 4 includes data on health providers and how often they listened carefully to, showed respect for and spent enough time with their patients.
The tables are available in Excel spreadsheet form (Data Cubes), which can be found on the download tab of the publication, (cat. no. 4839.0).
As estimates have been rounded, discrepancies may occur between sums of the component items and totals. Published proportions are calculated prior to rounding the estimates and therefore some discrepancy may occur between these proportions and those that are calculated from the rounded estimates.
For further information about these and related statistics, contact the National Information and Referral Service on 1300 135 070.
Information about the survey design and methodology, the quality and interpretation of results, and the range of publications and other data services available or planned is available in the Explanatory Notes.
