Web update: Immunisation rates for children in 2016–17 - Technical Note - About the measures

Web update: Immunisation rates for children in 2016–17

About the measures

Childhood immunisation rates are not reported in areas where the eligible population is less than or equal to 25 registered children. Results where the eligible population is between 26 and 100 registered children are flagged, as they should be interpreted with caution (see Table 1).

The data reported excludes postcodes that are reserved for delivery to Post Office Boxes or receivers of large volumes of mail.

Data are available for over half of the approximately 2,700 Australian postcodes. These postcodes account for around 97% of children on the Australian Immunisation Register (AIR).
