Web update: HPV immunisation rates 2015–16 - Technical Note - Calculation of variability in the population

Web update: HPV immunisation rates 2015–16

Calculation of variability in the population

Due to known issues with variability in population estimates by sex and single year of age for some areas of geography, the variability in the population for the same cohort of adolescents between two time points was calculated to identify areas with a substantial population increase or decrease over the period.

Variability in the population was calculated as the absolute per cent change between the number of adolescents aged 13 in the vaccination year and the number aged 15 in reporting year (two years later), using the ERP summarised to geography (either PHN area or SA4) for each financial year reported.

Results for areas with a substantial population change have either been suppressed (NP) or marked as ‘interpret with caution’ (#).
