Identifying and definitional attributes
|Metadata item type:||Indicator|
|Short name:||PI 03-Rates of current daily smokers, 2013|
|Registration status:||Indigenous, Archived 13/12/2013|
|Description:||Proportion of adults who are current daily smokers, by Indigenous status.|
|Rationale:||Smoking is a major risk factor that contributes to ill health. Indigenous Australians are twice as likely as non-Indigenous Australians to smoke. Reducing the rate of smoking among Indigenous Australians will assist in closing the gap in life expectancy.|

|Outcome area:||Indigenous people remain healthy and free of preventable disease Indigenous, Endorsed 21/07/2010|
Collection and usage attributes
|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.
Presentation: Per 100 persons (percentage).
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 years to 55 years and over to be consistent with estimates published 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 and over who smoke tobacco every day.|

|Denominator:||Total population of people aged 18 years and over|
|Denominator data elements:|
National and state/territory for Indigenous Australians (crude rates).
National and state/territory by Indigenous status (age-standardised rates).

NO NEW DATA FOR 2013 REPORTING.
Data sources for this indicator are the NATSISS (Indigenous); NATSIHS (Indigenous); and NHS 2007-08 (non-Indigenous). The baseline report reported data from the 2008 NATSISS (Indigenous) and 2007-08 NHS (Non-Indigenous). The next available data sources will be the 2011-13 Australian Health Survey (AHS) (sourcing the 2012-13 AATSIHS and 2011-12 NHS).
At this stage, data are available for persons aged 15 years and over only (broader age range is available from the AHS). Data from the NATSIHS are available for remote and very remote areas. The NHS does not cover very remote areas. Baseline year for NIRA target (Close the life expectancy gap within a generation) is 2006; baseline year for this indicator is 2008; target year is 2031.
