|Population group age from:||18 years|
Crude rates are calculated for Indigenous Australians.
Age-standardised rates are calculated for Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians.
95% Confidence intervals and relative standard errors are calculated for crude and age-standardised rates.
Rate ratios and rate differences are calculated for Indigenous:non-Indigenous.
Number, rate per 100 persons (percentage), rate ratio, rate difference, confidence intervals, and relative standard error.
Crude rate: 100 x (Numerator ÷ Denominator).
Age-standardised rate: calculated using the direct method with the 2001 Australian population as at 30 June as the standard. Ten year age groups are used from 0-4 to 55 years and over to be consistent with published estimates by the ABS.
Rate ratio: Indigenous age-standardised rate divided by non-Indigenous age-standardised rate.
Rate difference: Indigenous age-standardised rate minus non-Indigenous age-standardised rate.
|Numerator:||People aged 18 years or over with a Body Mass Index (BMI) greater than 30 (obese)|
