1. An image decoding method of performing decoding processing by partitioning a picture into a plurality of slices, the image decoding method comprisingextracting, using a decoder, from a coded bitstream, a dependent slice enabling flag indicating whether or not the picture includes a dependent slice on which the decoding processing is performed depending on a result of the decoding processing on a slice different from a current slice, a slice address indicating a starting position of the current slice, and a dependency indication indicating whether or not the current slice is the dependent slice,wherein the dependent slice enabling flag is disposed in a parameter set common to the slices,the slice address is disposed in a slice header of the current slice, andthe dependency indication is disposed in the slice header, and is disposed before the slice address and after a syntax element identifying the parameter set.
