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

"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.

The ICD-10-AM external cause codes used for 'accidental poisoning' are based on any external cause reported. This may lead to overlap between 'accidental poisoning' and the other categories. Categories are based on ICD-10-AM classification of diseases (International Statistical Classification of Diseases and Related Health Problems, 10th Revision, Australian Modification). Directly age-standardised using the Australian 2001 standard population. From 2004-05 to 2009-10, six jurisdictions (NSW, Victoria, Queensland, WA, SA and the NT) were considered to have acceptable quality of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander identification in hospitalisation data. Data are for residents of these jurisdictions, and exclude separations from private hospitals in the NT. From 2010-11 onwards, data for all jurisdictions are considered to be of acceptable quality (see previous table). 'Other includes hospitalisations of non-Indigenous people and those for whom Indigenous status was not stated. OVERCOMING INDIGENOUS DISADVANTAGE 2016 ATTACHMENT TABLES PAGE 1 of TABLE 11A.2.10
