Comments:

Most recent data available for 2014 Council of Australian Governments (COAG) Reform Council (CRC) report: 2011-12 (total population: AHS); 2012-13 (Indigenous status: AATSIHS and AHS).

Baseline: 2007–08 (total population); 2008 (Indigenous status).

National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Social Survey (NATSISS) or National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Survey (NATSIHS)/Australian Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Survey (AATSIHS) data may be used for analysis, dependent upon which survey is most recent.

For further detailed analysis by Indigenous status see the CRC National Indigenous Reform Agreement (NIRA) report.
