Making a request

To request a data report, submit the form below, providing as much relevant detail as possible.

Your request may be eligible where all of the following criteria are met:

  • The request is received from an organisation with a bona fide interest in death and injury prevention.
  • The intended use of the data will meaningfully contribute to death and injury prevention in the community.

The NCIS Unit will assess your request and contact you to discuss.


The minimum data report service fee is A$450 (excl GST). Additional work is charged at an hourly rate of A$150 (excl GST).

The fee covers the cost for the time taken to identify, analyse and collate the data, and varies dependent upon the complexity of the request. The NCIS Unit will provide you with a quote for the data report including a breakdown of costs.


The release of all data reports is subject to the approval of the relevant State or Chief Coroner(s). The NCIS Unit will facilitate this approval process on your behalf.

In the event that the report is unable to be provided, the NCIS Unit will notify you as soon as possible and any fees pertaining to the request will be waived.

The NCIS Unit reserves the right to suppress figures and group certain data breakdowns to ensure the information is sufficiently de-identified.
