abstract The cause of death unit record file (COD URF) is a dataset containing information relating to all deaths registered in Australia for a given reference year. The dataset does not contain names but has a number of attributes of an individual including the International Classification of Disease (currently version 10) codes relating to the causes of death, which are added by the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS). | | The national dataset is a compilation of death records from each of the State and Territory Registries of Births, Deaths and Marriages (RBDMs) and from State and Chief Coroners through the National Coronial Information System (NCIS). Subsets of the national data will be available by individual or multiple jurisdictions. | | The COD URF is used for demographic and health purposes. Research from this data provides significant information for the formulation and monitoring of health and other social policies. For a full list of the data items included in the COD URF refer to: “What data items are included in the COD URF?” | | Note: The data available is coded to ICD-10, not ICD-10-AM. | | These data require an extensive application process including ethics approval and involve heavy fees. Additionally, each project requires its own application. For projects where aggregate or summary data are required, it is easier to obtain data through the AIHW or ABS.
