Abstract

Considerable efforts have been made in recent years to improve the information available from four of the main sets of health-related administrative data collections: the birth registration systems and the maternal/perintal collections for information about births to Indegenous mothers and fathers; for information about the deaths of Indigenous people and the hospital in-patience collections for episodes of hospitalisation of Indigenous people.
