Tassie top death rate state

This article is interesting for comparison with the article Aboriginal areas suffer worst death rates because it uses the same data set and reports from a different perspective. It would be of interest for students to compare these two articles in Media Studies classes and social science classes, as well as in mathematics classes. Of particular interest is the fact that this article only discusses state data while the other reports territory figures. In many cases the Northern Territory has higher rates than Tasmania. It could be of interest to obtain the original report and let students draw their own inferences from the data.
