Abstract

The Australian Institute of Health and Welfare recently released Australia's health 2006, the tenth edition of its biennial national health report. The report shows that Australians generally have good health and access to a range of good health care services, but Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples have much poorer health than the general population. Indigenous Australians also have higher rates of unemployment, poorer educational outcomes, and lower levels of home ownership. Section 4.5 of the report compiles health information on Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. Information about the demographic profile, health status, disability rates, and service use is provided. The section concludes with information on behaviours that shape the health status of Indigenous peoples such as tobacco use, alcohol misuse, illicit drug use, and housing conditions.
