Disease/injury-specific summary

Use the interactive graphs to generate a summary of burden of disease in Australia in 2022 for a specific disease or injury (including COVID-19).

For the first time the Study includes estimates of disease burden due to COVID-19, using data available at the time of analysis. This included data on deaths, cases and hospitalisations up until August 2022. Given the dynamic and ongoing nature of the COVID-19 pandemic, these estimates may be revised in the future as more data become available. For a discussion of results related to specific diseases, such as coronary heart disease (the leading cause of disease burden in 2022) and COVID-19, refer to the Summary.

This interactive data visualisation reports a range of statistics on the burden of a specific disease or injury in Australia, which can be selected by the user. There are a number of sentences reporting the amount and rate of total, fatal and non-fatal burden due to the disease or injury in 2022; the proportion of total burden in 2022 which is due to fatal and non-fatal burden; and the age-standardised rates of total, fatal and non-fatal burden by sex and year (2003, 2011, 2015, 2018 and 2022). There are 4 column charts showing the amount and rate of total burden for males and females by 5-year age groups in 2022.
