This database is a catalogue of existing national indicators relevant to chronic disease. It has been developed by the AIHW Population Health Unit under the MOU with the Department of Health and Ageing.
If you are experiencing problems with viewing the Chronic Disease Indicators website, or it is running very slowly, please click here to access a simplified version. If you would like further assistance, please contact the .
The CDI database can be searched in several different ways.
The diseases/determinants tree sorts indicators by chronic disease or determinant. A mouse-click on the disease or determinant displays all indicators in this category, while clicking on the + or - symbols displays the sub-categories.
The keyword option allows searching in any field of the database, such as data source (e.g. NHS) or indicator source (e.g. NHPA).
The data type option searches for indicators by the type of data (e.g. mortality, hospitalisations).
The indicator source option searches for indicators by the source of the indicator (e.g. NHPA).
The indicator ID option allows searching for a specific indicator by ID (to use this, you must mouse-click on the 'go' button after entering the ID number - it will not work simply using 'enter').
Please click on the All citations link to see full citations for all referenced publications.
