Health data

Epidemiology (study of diseases in populations) looks at the distribution and determinants of health and diseases, morbidity, injuries, disability and mortality in populations.

Its goal is to identify the underlying causes of a disease and then apply findings to disease prevention and health promotion.

Public Health Services:

  • monitors and reports on the health status of the Tasmanian population
  • conducts Chronic Disease surveillance
  • provides expert advice and consultancy on epidemiological, statistical, and survey sampling issues
  • creates easy access to user-friendly and timely health data
  • collaborates with key stakeholders such as the Menzies Centre, University of Tasmania, Tasmanian Medicare Local, the Australian Bureau of Statistics and other national bodies.
