5 Explanatory notes Several data sources were used and analysed in the preparation of this report. These are: > AIHW National Cancer Statistics Clearing House (NCSCH) > AIHW Australian Cancer Incidence and Mortality Books (ACIM) > AIHW National Hospital Morbidity Database (NHMD) > NSW Dust Diseases Board > National Data Set for Compensation-based Statistics (NDS) > Australian Bureau of Statistics Causes of Death (ABS) Table 1 Summary of data sources Mesothelioma Number of new cases of mesothelioma in Australia ACIM Age-standardised incidence of mesothelioma in Australia ACIM Number of compensated mesothelioma-related claims NDS & DDB Number of deaths attributed to mesothelioma ACIM & ABS Age-standardised mesothelioma death rates ACIM Age-standardised mesothelioma death rates ACIM Asbestosis Number of compensated asbestosis-related claims NDS & DDB Number of asbestosis deaths ABS National Data Set for Compensation-based Statistics (NDS) The NDS data used in this report comprised all accepted workers’ compensation claims lodged in the reference year. NDS data is based on information received annually from Australian workers’ compensation authorities. Supplied data includes both new data, for the most recent year available, and updated data for the five years prior. Because some claims lodged in the most recent year may not be accepted until the following year, the number of accepted claims reported lodged in the most recent year is likely to increase by about 3% when updated.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
