  1. *The numerator for non-ACSCs was taken to be the sample from the Victorian Admitted Episode Dataset (VAED) to match the numbers of ACSCs rather than all non-ACSCs admissions for 2003-04. Hence non-ACSCs admission rates are an underestimate of the true rates of non-ACSCs admissions in the population in 2003-04.
