Death registrations are provided to the Australian Bureau of Statistics by the State and Territory Registrars of Births, Deaths and Marriages. In this project, the records of individuals whose deaths were registered in 2011-12 have been augmented with personal information obtained from the 2011 Census. This has been achieved through a process of probabilistic record linkage. The resulting linked dataset promises to contribute significantly to a better understanding of health risk factors, leading to more informed targeting of health policy and support measures for the Australian community. This paper describes the creation of the linked dataset and provides necessary background material and advice for potential users.
