Our websites

Our website at www.aihw.gov.au is our main channel for AIHW information, including our PDF and HTML reports, other data-related outputs, our services and corporate information. Many of our reports include interactive data tables and other visual displays of information.

There were 4,447,359 user sessions on our website in 2019–20—an increase of 8.5% from 2018–19 (4.1 million).

We managed 4 other websites in 2019–20: GEN—Aged Care Data, the Australian Mesothelioma Registry (AMR), Housing Data Dashboard and MyHospitals (1 July 2019 to 31 March 2020).

GEN—Aged Care Data

Our GEN website at www.gen-agedcaredata. gov.au is designed to cater for all levels of users, from people seeking basic information through to data modellers and actuaries.

Each section on the website begins with an overview and ‘fast facts’ on the topic, followed by greater detail and the ability to interact with the data. Additional data underpinning each topic are available for further analysis.

There were 92,100 sessions on the GEN website in 2019–20, which is comparable with 2018–19 (92,700).

Australian Mesothelioma Registry

We manage the AMR at www.mesothelioma- australia.com on behalf of Safe Work Australia. The AMR contains information about people with mesothelioma, monitors new cases diagnosed in Australia from 1 July 2010 and collects information about asbestos exposure.

There were 4,400 sessions on the AMR website—an increase of 16% from 2018–19 (3,800).

Housing Data Dashboard

The Housing Data Dashboard was launched on 26 August 2019. It is a novel website that brings together data from over 20 key national data sets into an interactive dashboard environment. Users can dig deeper into the data presented via interactive dynamic data displays and can export or share customised dashboards with others. Each data tile is a gateway to the data source where detailed analysis, data quality information and additional data are presented.

There were 16,391 sessions on the Housing Data Dashboard.


The new MyHospitals subsite on the AIHW main website was launched on 11 December 2019, with the original MyHospitals website (www.myhospitals.gov. au) available for stakeholders to access and download data. It was decommissioned on 31 March 2020, with re-directs to the new AIHW subsite after this date.

The MyHospitals national reporting platform allows users to explore information about more than 1,000 public and private hospitals, Local Hospital Networks and trends across Australia.

There were 1,000,334 page views on the original MyHospitals website from 1 July 2019 to 31 March 2020. Since the launch (11 December 2019) of the

MyHospitals subsite on the AIHW website, there were 294,224 page views to 30 June 2020.
