Summary A known problem with health data in Australia is the under-identification and misclassification of Indigenous status. This impacts upon the proper design of policy development and service delivery to address disadvantage in this area. As part of the 'Victorian Aboriginal Child Mortality Study, 1988-2008', researchers began by examining the accuracy and completeness of major administrative and statutory datasets in Victoria. Questionnaires were sent to twenty datasets that collect information on maternal, infant, child, or young people?s health in Victoria, to identify the types of data collected, data quality, how Indigenous status is identified, barriers to data collection, ethical clearance, and contact details. This report presents the findings of this analysis, and includes the survey responses and sample questionnaires from such collections as the Victorian Registry of Births, the Victorian Registry of Deaths, the Perinatal Data Collection, and the Child Dentistry Register.
