Australian Aboriginal children have higher rates of mortality at younger ages than their non-Aboriginal peers, yet there is little research on potentially modifiable predictors of in-hospital mortality for these children. We aimed to (i) calculate the case fatality rate (CFR) for Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal children admitted to children’s hospitals in New South Wales (NSW) and (ii) identify the predictors of mortality using a cross-sectional analysis of admission data for in-patient admissions to a large tertiary children’s network over a five-year period. Our data showed that Aboriginal children are almost twice as likely to die as non-Aboriginal children with excess deaths in Aboriginal children from outer regional and remote areas and children <2 years of age with perinatal or circulatory conditions.
