Disease burden was estimated by remoteness areas for 2011 and 2015.
Remoteness is divided into Major cities, Inner regional, Outer regional and Remote and very remote defined by an area’s relative access to services.
The key results include estimates of excess burden. Excess burden refers to the reduction in disease burden that would occur if all areas experienced the same rate of burden experienced in Major cities. In the data visualisation the key results show the excess burden if Remote and very remote areas experienced the same rate of burden experienced in Major cities.
Use the interactive graphs to explore the number and rate of disease burden (DALY, YLD or YLL) across remoteness areas for disease groups in 2011 or 2015 by sex.
