Abstract: This data quality survey is the third project conducted by the Northern Territory (NT) Department of Health over a 13 year period to measure the accuracy of demographic information collected by NT public hospitals about hospital inpatients. The NT component of the survey was conducted by the Health Gains Planning (HGP) Branch of the NT Department of Health. HGP Branch staff interviewed 892 inpatients of the five NT public hospitals during their hospital admission. Patients were asked about their age, sex, Indigenous status, country of birth, and place of residence. In addition, the NT survey included questions about the patient’s place of residence one year and five years ago. The survey results were compared with information recorded in the NT hospital information system, which is shared by all NT public hospitals.
