APPENDIX 2: CLASSIFICATION OF HEALTH CONDITIONS

Conditions in the AHS are presented using classifications based on the International Classification of Diseases: 10th Revision (ICD-10).

The code list used for the 2011-12 NHS was that initially compiled for use in the 2001 NHS by the Family Medicine Research Centre, University of Sydney, in association with the ABS. This was also used for the 2004-05 and 2007-08 NHS. Conditions classified at the full level of detail are not generally available for output from the survey; however, they can be regrouped in various ways for output. The standard output classification, developed for the NHS, is based on the INTERNATIONAL CLASSIFICATION OF DISEASES: 10TH REVISION (ICD-10).

(a) In published output, selected circulatory conditions are grouped as follows under the heading of Heart, stroke and vascular disease: Angina (117, 938); other ischaemic heart diseases (382, 383, 384, 391, 936); cerebrovascular diseases (396, 397, 398, 937); oedema (135, 941); and diseases of the arteries, arterioles and capillaries (114, 115, 290, 367, 399, 404, 940).


To present data for NNPAS, and the combined NHS/NNPAS sample (referred to as the Core), a mini version of the ICD-10 classification has been produced. This classification is based on the full version used in the NHS, and also drawing out some specific condition codes from NHS groupings to present commonly reported conditions.
