Repeated requests for health status measures at the level of the 78 Local Government Areas (LGAs) in Victoria inspired a subsequent breakdown of the burden of disease figures to 56 LGAs or aggregates of LGAs with small population sizes.
These small area estimates were derived from 5 years of local mortality data and synthetic estimates of the disability estimates based on socio-economic and rural/urban differentials at the state level.
