For those aged 1-17 years, NT death rates have decreased by approximately 90% during the 40 year period from 1967 to 2006 (Figure 3). The relative Australian rate decreased by approximately 70%. Even though there has been a larger decrease over this period the Indigenous rates, particularly Indigenous females in recent times, remain well above the Australian rate. The NT non-Indigenous rate has been similar to Australian rates during the last 20 years for both males and females.
