Abstract

This project forms the quantitative component of the Acute Care Diversity Collaboration (ACDC) Project within the Centre for Culture Ethnicity and Health. The ACDC initiative is a Victorian Department of Human Services (DHS) funded project that aims to provide a resource to Victorian hospitals to improve access and service delivery for people from Non-English Speaking Backgrounds. Within this broader context, the present report presents an overview of ethnicity data (country of birth and language) for Victoria, including DHS metropolitan and rural regions. Comparative data is also presented for twenty-one major metropolitan and rural hospitals in the Victorian Acute Health System.
