8570.0 Health Care Services, 2009-10 (First Issue) [Australian Bureau of Statistics]

The Australian Bureau of Statistics has released a new publication which contains information about Health Care Services in Australia. Data include: income and expenditure, employment, workforce characteristics, state and regional breakdowns of key data items, performance ratios, and patient/client data.

Two views of health care services statistics are presented in this publication:

* an industry view in Chapters 1 to 5. This view presents data for businesses and organisations whose predominant activity is the provision of health care services. Industry data are classified according to the Australian and New Zealand Standard Industrial Classification (ANZSIC), 2006 edition.

* a General Practitioner practice view in Chapter 1 commentary. This view reflects key performance measures of private GP practices. Practices are identified as a subset of the industry view for GPs and are based on a benchmark provided by the Australian General Practice Network.

The publication is free to download here. ( http://www.abs.gov.au/AUSSTATS/abs@.nsf/Lookup/8570.0Main+Features12009-10?OpenDocument
