Data scope

The Australian Burden of Disease Database was established as part of the Australian Burden of Disease Study 2011 to set up the relevant infrastructure to enable efficient and timely ongoing updates by the AIHW as required.

The database is updated and added to following the completion of each ABDS. It currently includes national estimates of disease burden and risk factor attribution for 2003, 2011 and 2015. Subnational estimates of disease burden are available for state/territory, remoteness and socioeconomic group for 2011 and 2015. Subnational estimates of risk factor attribution are available for socioeconomic group for 2015.

Indigenous-specific estimates of disease burden and risk factor attribution are available for 2003 and 2011.

All data are available by 5 year age group and sex.
