Appendix 3: Indigenous status, National Notifiable Diseases Surveillance System, Australia, 2013, by notifiable disease*
Disease name Aboriginal but not TSI origin TSI but not Aboriginal origin Aboriginal and TSI origin Not Indigenous Not stated Blank/ missing Total % complete Number complete Number incomplete
* Indigenous status is usually obtained from medical notification and completeness varies by disease and by state and territory. This reflects differences in notification requirements (i.e. depending on the jurisdiction, some diseases are primarily or completely notified by pathology laboratories rather than clinicians) and the fact that it is not possible to follow-up all cases for diseases with a large volume of notifications and/or not requiring specific case-based public health action.
