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.
"These reports generally uses the term ‘Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians’ to describe Australia’s first peoples and ‘non-Indigenous Australians’ to refer to Australians of other backgrounds, except where quoting other sources." Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people should be aware that this publication may contain images of deceased people.

Categories are based on ICD-10-AM classification of diseases (International Statistical Classification of Diseases and Related Health Problems, 10th Revision, Australian Modification). ICD-10-AM (fifth edition) codes F10, K70, K75 and T51 based on principal diagnosis. External cause codes X45, X65 and Y15 based on any external cause reported. Overlapping may exist between separations by toxic effect of alcohol and separations based on external causes X45, X65, or Y15. 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 in the jurisdiction. Rates per 100 000 population are calculated using ABS Estimated Resident Population at 30 June at the start of each financial year by remoteness classification from the 2011 Census. Rates were directly age standardised to the 2001 Australian population. Rate ratio is the age standardised Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander hospitalisation rate divided by the non-Indigenous Australians' hospitalisation rate. Some data have been revised for WA for 2012-13 affecting counts of separations with principal diagnoses in the F chapter. Non-Indigenous includes hospitalisations where Indigenous status was recorded as non-Indigenous and for WA only where Indigenous status was not stated.
