This web report and fact sheets provide detailed information on the major causes of premature deaths in Australia, both overall, and among certain age groups. It explores current patterns and trends over time for premature deaths. The fact sheets explore population-level approaches that target specific causes of premature death which may have contributed to improvements in death rates for some causes.

Information for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people focuses on:

  • Indigenous potential years of life lost
  • Indigenous potentially avoidable deaths
  • trends in Indigenous premature mortality
  • leading causes of Indigenous premature mortality.
