Deaths - diabetes


    Age standardised mortality rate for diabetes, by sex, ACT and Australia, 2011 to 2021

    • Deaths for 2020 and 2021 are preliminary and are subject to change as they do not include deaths subject to the coronial process.  A coroner may investigate a death if the death is unexpected or violent (such as a homicide and suicide), when the identity is unknown, cause of death is not known or if the person is in care or custody. The coronial process can take several years, particularly where an inquest is held, or complex investigations are being undertaken. Therefore, there is a delay in reporting deaths through this process.
    • Mortality statistics published on ACT HealthStats ACT (unless otherwise specified) are based on the Cause Of Death Unit Record File (CODURF) provided by the Australian Coordinating Registry (ACR) and are reported by year of occurrence.

    The data contained in this dataset is based on the Cause Of Death Unit Record File (CODURF) provided by the Australian Coordinating Registry (ACR), the data has been aggregated based on either a single or grouped ICD-10* classification.

    The ACT deaths data is collected and maintained by the ACT registrar of Births, Deaths and Marriages (ACT RBDM), which records all medical conditions that directly caused or contributed to the death and were applicable, ie the circumstances surrounding a death (eg. motor vehicle accident). 

    The National Coronial Information System (NCIS) records and stores information relating to coroner  certified deaths for the purposes of retrieval, analysis, interpretation and dissemination to allow for informed death and injury prevention activities.

    The Australian Coordinating Registry (ACR) is an agency appointed by state and territory RBDMs and coroners to coordinate and manage approval of coded deaths data.
