De-identified unit record data were extracted from the HPV Register on 12 August 2017.

Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) Estimated Resident Population (ERP) aged 13 as at 30 June 2014.

Calculation 100 × (Numerator ÷ denominator)
Suppression rules

The following suppression rules were applied:

  • If the 13 year old population for 30 June 2014 (denominator) for an area is less than 200, the proportion is suppressed and reported as NP.
  • If the unrounded variability in the population for an area is greater than or equal to 10%, the proportion is suppressed and reported as NP.
  • If the unrounded variability in the population for an area is greater than or equal to 5% and less than 10%, the proportion is marked as interpret with caution (#).
