Overview of Australian Indigenous health status, 2012.
Perth, WA: Australian Indigenous HealthInfoNet
This report provides recent information on:
- Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander populations
- the context of Indigenous health
- various measures of population health status
- selected health conditions
- health risk and protective factors.
This Overview draws on statistics and other published and unpublished materials to provide up-to-date, detailed information about the health of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples in 2012. It highlights a number of improvements in certain aspects of Indigenous health, but underlines that ongoing work is needed to 'close the gap' in health status between Indigenous and other Australians.
