a. Data for 2019 shows an increase of 10,808 deaths compared with the number of deaths registered in 2018. Victoria recorded the largest increase (5,713 deaths), which included 2,812 deaths from between 2017 to 2019 that had not previously been supplied to the ABS. New South Wales recorded the second largest increase (2,425 deaths) which reflected more timely registration of deaths. Further information can be found in paragraph 23 in the Explanatory Notes.
The standardised death rate (SDR) uses the age distribution of total persons in the Australian population at 30 June 2001 as the standard population. The SDR is expressed as deaths per 1,000 standard population.
The crude death rate is the number of deaths registered during the calendar year per 1,000 estimated resident population at 30 June.
The infant mortality rate is the number of deaths of children under one year of age in a specified period per 1,000 live births in the same period.
