The NCIS welcomes media enquiries for statistics on coronial data.

The following resources are available:

Media requests for data

The NCIS can also prepare data reports for the media upon request. NCIS data reports present aggregate, statistical data based on the specifications of the request. Data reports do not contain identifying information and the NCIS reserves the right to group certain data breakdowns to ensure the information is sufficiently de-identified.

The release of all data reports is subject to the approval of the relevant State or Chief Coroner. The NCIS facilitates this approval process.


There is a cost recovery fee for the provision of a data report. The service is charged at an hourly rate of $165 (GST inclusive). A quote will be provided prior to any work being commenced by the NCIS.


Report preparation and approval can take up to three weeks from acceptance of the quote.
To submit a request, see request a data report.
