"This report presents the results of a study on the quality of Indigenous identification in administrative records of hospitalisations in public hospitals in Australia. An estimated 88% of Indigenous patients were correctly identified in public hospital admission records in 2011-12. The report also recommends that data for all jurisdictions be included in any analysis of hospitalisations by Indigenous status and that correction factors be used to adjust total hospital data from 2010-11 onwards."--BACK COVER.
