Publications

Our core funding only enables us to address Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health nationally, and does not allow us to comprehensively consolidate this information at state, territory or regional level. Information relating to Indigenous health in Tasmania has been collected as a part of our national focus.

Australian Burden of Disease Study: fatal burden of disease in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people 2010.

Canberra: Australian Institute of Health and Welfare

This report presents estimates of fatal burden for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians for 2010 produced as part of the Indigenous component of the Australian burden of disease study.

Fatal burden is measured in years of life lost, which is the sum of the number of years of life lost due to premature death from disease and injury. Fatal burden estimates presented in this report are described for the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander population for broad disease groups, by age and sex. Estimates of the 'gap' in fatal burden between Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians are also reported, together with selected sub-national estimates (selected states and territories, remoteness and socioeconomic disadvantage).

The Australian Institute of Health and Welfare will release a more comprehensive report on the burden of disease for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples in 2016. It will update and extend this report with 2011 estimates of fatal and non-fatal burden for more specific causes, as well as the burden attributable to selected risk factors.
