National Coronial Information System
The National Coronial Information System (NCIS) is a data repository containing information about deaths reported to a Coroner in Australia and New Zealand. Established as a resource for Coroners, the NCIS was launched in 2000 with the objective to securely share case information beyond state and territory borders for the purpose of coronial investigation and death prevention.
This information includes demographic information about the deceased, contextual information about the nature of the fatality and supporting documentation. The data is utilised by Coroners, police, all levels of government, community and advocacy groups, researchers and the media as an evidence base for awareness raising and death prevention initiatives.
