The Australian Institute of Health and Welfare (AIHW) has developed core monitoring information on the prevalence, incidence, hospitalisation and deaths from chronic kidney disease (CKD) in Australia. This is updated on a regular basis on the AIHW website to ensure that current information and trends are readily available.
1.8 million hospitalisations were associated with CKD in 2017–18—16% of all hospitalisations in Australia
In 2018, there were 16,800 CKD-related deaths— 79% had CKD listed as an associated cause
In 2017-18, Indigenous Australians had regular dialysis rates that were 11 times as high as the non-Indigenous rate
70% of CKD hospitalisations (excluding dialysis) occur at ages 65 and over
