This study aims to explain the Indigenous life expectancy (LE) gap by common modifiable risk factors in the period from 1986 to 2005. The LE gap between Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians was 12 years for men and 10 years for women, whereas the Northern Territory Indigenous LE gap was at least 50% greater than the national figures.
