Rates of death and leading causes of death differ between population groups. This may be driven by variations in the population characteristics, causes of death at different ages, characteristics of the place where people live, the prevalence of illness and risk factors, and access to health services.
Deaths reported in this section are over a 5-year period combined (2016–2020), and rates are reported as crude rates in the first instance, followed by age-standardised rates to allow comparisons to be made between population groups with differing age structures.
See Indigenous life expectancy and deaths.
Note: Mortality data by Indigenous status are restricted to those 5 states and territories where information on Indigenous status is considered of sufficient quality and completeness of reporting: New South Wales, Queensland, Western Australia, South Australia and the Northern Territory.
