Data scope

The scope of the database is hospitals classified as either a Principal referral and specialist women's and children's hospital or a Large hospital (Peer Group A or B) in the AIHW's Australian Hospital Statistics publication from the preceding financial year (see appendix 1 of Australian hospital statistics 2007-08 for further information).  Hospitals other than these can also supply data and once they have, also become in scope for future years.
