08/03/2011: The following data cubes were updated on 8 March 2011 with data revisions to a small number of sub-state geographic areas. State and territory level data are not affected.
Deaths, Summary, Statistical Divisions—2003 to 2008
Deaths, Summary, Statistical Local Areas—2003 to 2008
Deaths, Summary, Local Government Areas—2003 to 2008

25/02/2010: The data cube Deaths, Summary, Statistical Divisions, 2003-2008 was updated on 25 February 2010 with life expectancy at birth for statistical divisions for 2008. Estimates for 2003 to 2007 have also been updated to Australian Standard Geographic Classification 2008 (cat. no. 1216.0) boundaries.

Due to the identification of inconsistencies in the calculation of mortality rates at very old ages (ages 95 years and older), life expectancy data and other functions of the life table for Australia for 2006-2008 have been revised. This affects tables 2.16, 4.1, 4.2 and 4.3, and data cube Life expectancy, Selected ages—1998 to 2008. Life expectancy at birth for Australia for both males and females are not affected, while revisions for older ages are relatively small.

In addition, 2006–2008 state/territory life expectancy data which was not available for the initial release on 25 November 2009, has been added to data cubes
    • Deaths, Summary—1998 to 2008;
    • Life expectancy, Selected ages—1998 to 2008; and
    • Deaths, Summary, Statistical Divisions—2003 to 2008
