On request, the NCIS can prepare data reports presenting aggregate, statistical data based on the specifications of the request. Topics of past data reports have included the number of drowning fatalities of children in pools or drug-related deaths of medical practitioners. 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 will facilitate the approval process on behalf of the requestor.

Data reports may be requested by organisations and the media. To request a data report, please complete the data request form below.

On receiving the request form, the NCIS will assess the request and contact you to clarify any information and to discuss the process.

Upon finalisation of the request, the NCIS will provide you with a quote for the data report. The data report service is charged at an hourly rate of $165 (inc GST). The fee covers the cost for the time taken to identify, prepare, collate and analyse the data. In the event that data is unable to be provided, the NCIS will notify the requesting party as soon as possible and any fees pertaining to work undertaken on the request will be waived.

Once acceptance of the quote has been received in writing, there is a minimum three week turnaround for the delivery of the data report. This includes the time taken to conduct searches of the database, manually review cases, compile the data into a report and seek the requisite approvals prior to releasing the information. The final report will be delivered as a PDF.

For further information and assistance, please contact the NCIS.
