Appendix C: Public hospital peer groups

This report uses the Australian hospital peer group classification (AIHW 2015a). A summary of the public hospital peer group classification is presented in Table C.1 (available to download in the data section of the report).

In AIHW reports before 2014–15, this information was presented using the previous peer group classification. The change from the previous peer group classification to the current peer group classification has resulted in a ‘break in series’ for data disaggregated by peer group. Therefore, the performance indicator information presented here by public hospital peer group is not directly comparable with information presented in AIHW reports before 2014–15.
