Nephrology, 23 5: 453-460. doi:10.1111/nep.13053trajectAim: Low socio-economic status (SES) is associated with increased incidence of end-stage kidney disease and in the USA, poorer dialysis survival. All Australians have access to a universal healthcare system. Methods: The study included all non-indigenous adult Australians registered with the Australia and New Zealand Dialysis and Transplant Registry who commenced dialysis between 2003 and 2013. SES at dialysis start was classified into quartiles of advantaged through to disadvantaged using Australian Bureau of Statistics socio-economic indexes for areas. The primary outcome was survival assessed using a competing risk regression model with renal transplantation as a competing risk. There was a significant interaction between age and SES, and hence, age-stratified survival analyses were performed. Results: A total 20 810 commenced dialysis during the study period. Mortality for the most advantaged quartile was 102.4/1000 person–year
