Adults that have been released from prison have an increased risk of unnatural death. However, there is a scarcity of publicly available information about the numbers of deaths occurring around Australia. This paper aims to contribute the post-release mortality research by understand what publicly available data about post-imprisonment deaths are available in each Australian jurisdiction and ascertain how we can fill in the gaps in knowledge. How do governments conceptual post-release deaths? What influence does post-release supervision have on the risk or likelihood of unnatural death? Does the type of support accessed (voluntary post-release support or involuntary post-release supervision) impact on risk of death?
