Description

The OID report measures the wellbeing of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians, and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians have been actively involved in the development and production of the report. Section 1.1 describes the origins of the report, and section 1.2 describes its key objectives. Section 1.3 provides contextual information on the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander population. Section 1.4 includes a brief historical narrative to help put the information in the report into context. Section 1.5 summarises some recent developments in government policy that have influenced the report and section 1.6 provides further information on the Steering Committee and the OID Working Group that advises it.

Notes

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people should be aware that this publication may contain images of deceased people.

This specification is different to that used in previous OID reports. Categories are based on ICD-10-AM classification of diseases (International Statistical Classification of Diseases and Related Health Problems, 10th Revision, Australian Modification). Non-fatal refers to records where the mode of separation was not equal to died. Hospitalisations were based on ICD-10-AM codes for assault X85Y09. Non-fatal hospitalisations for assault, by Indigenous status, by remoteness, by relationship of victim to perpetrator, Australia, 2012 13 (a), (b), (c) Hospitalisations (no.) Rate per 100 000 (d) Rate ratio (f) Data are from public and private hospitals in all jurisdictions. Disaggregation by remoteness area is based on the ABS' 2011 Australian Statistical Geography Standard (ASGS) and relates to the patient's usual residence, not the location of hospital. Hence, rates represent the number of separations for patients living in each remoteness area divided by the total number of people living in that remoteness area.
