This report presents national-level information on treated and non-treated incident cases of end-stage kidney disease (ESKD). Information for the period 2003-2007 is presented, with results based on a newly developed method of estimating the total incidence of ESKD in Australia that includes persons who do not undertake kidney replacement therapy (KRT). With previous data compiled by the Australia and New Zealand Dialysis and Transplant Registry (ANZDATA) only reporting on the incidence of ESKD in Australia for those treated with KRT, this new method, the first of its kind in Australia, was developed by the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare (AIHW) with advice from its chronic kidney disease (CKD) expert advisory committee. The report provides results for various states and territories as well as providing comparison data for Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians.
