Data about the health and wellbeing of Tasmanians is a key ingredient in Primary Health Tasmania’s commissioning process.
With this in mind, a range of statistics, insights and other information is collated to provide an evidence base from which services can be developed.
Needs assessment report
Our annual needs assessment report is a summary of information that’s relevant to our commissioning activity. It provides a snapshot of Tasmanian health trends by noting areas of improvement, as well as those that continue to pose a challenge to the wellbeing of local populations.
Local government area profiles
Local government area health profiles and service maps are developed by Primary Health Tasmania using publicly available information. They are available for each of Tasmania’s 29 council areas. They include demographic data (such as age) and statistics relating to the social determinants of health, health risk factors, illness, potentially preventable hospitalisations, and death. Local health services are also mapped.
