HealthStats NSW is an interactive, web-based application that allows users to access data and tailor reports about the health of the New South Wales (NSW) population for their own use. It provides information on:
- the health status of the NSW population
- health inequalities and the determinants of health
- the major causes of diseases and injury, and current health challenges
- trends in health and comparisons between age groups and geographic locations.
The data in HealthStats NSW cover a range of health risk factors, diseases, locations, and specific populations (e.g Aboriginal people). Regular updates occur to add new indicators and to update data on existing indicators.
The population health indicators available on HealthStats NSW complement the clinical service data available from the Bureau of Health Information and Clinical Excellence Commission.
