Selected Avoidable Mortality rate Trend

Avoidable mortality (AM) is a simple and practical population-based method of counting untimely and unnecessary deaths from diseases for which effective public health and medical interventions are available. An excess of deaths due to preventable causes should suggest shortcomings in the healthcare system that warrant further attention. Five years of data has been aggregated for all analyses to reduce year-to-year variability in deaths, and the width of confidence intervals for areas with small populations. Data are presented by calendar year (1 Jan to 31 Dec), consistent with the release of mortality data by the Australian Bureau of Statistics.
