Causes of death in South Australia
I am looking for data on deaths related to food in South Australia over the past 40 years.
The Catalogue shows an ABS journal with a complete list of causes of death available in the National Library in Canberra and I am in Adelaide. Can I read the relevant documents online?
You have found the item titled Deaths, South Australia, which appears to contain all the information needed. However, when we check the dates available, we find only the years 1969-1993 are covered, so will not contain data from 2000 onwards.
The record shows the 'later title' was Demography, South Australia with data up to 2001. You can read these statistics (up to 2001) online at the ABS page Demography, South Australia. Use the 'Past Releases' tab for data back to 1993. When you have chosen a year, click on the "Downloads" tab to open the report.
For data after 2001, we need to use the publication, Causes of death, Australia. This can also be downloaded from the ABS website. Again, use the 'Previous Releases' tab.
In the 'Downloads' tab, we can find 'Underlying causes of death (South Australia)'.
