Abstract

Monitoring and reporting on the health of our population is a basic responsibility of NSW Health. It is the means by which we measure the health system’s performance at the broadest level and identify, highlight, and target emerging health issues. As such, it is fundamental to the rational planning and development of population-based and clinical health programs and services.
