|Description:||Prevalence of overweight and obesity among Australians, by Indigenous status.|

|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 (using age-standardised rates).
Number, rate per 100 persons (percentage), rate ratio, rate difference, confidence intervals, and relative standard error.
Body Mass Index categories to be reported: obese, overweight, normal, underweight.
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.
People aged 18 years or over with a Body Mass Index (BMI) greater than 30.00 (obese).
People aged 18 years or over with a BMI of 25.00-29.99 (overweight).
People aged 18 years or over with a BMI of 18.50-24.99 (normal range).
People aged 18 years or over with a BMI less than 18.50 (underweight).
|Numerator data elements:|
|Denominator:||Total populations (Indigenous and non-Indigenous) aged 18 years or over.|
|Denominator data elements:|
Obese, overweight, normal, underweight.
National and state/territory, remoteness area, for Indigenous Australians (crude rates).
National and state/territory, remoteness area, by Indigenous status (age-standardised rates).
|Disaggregation data elements:|
For the 2015 report, data are available for the core sample of the 2012-13 AATSIHS (NATSIHS plus NATSINPAS). The 2014 report included data for the 2012-13 NATSIHS only (Indigenous) and the core component of the 2011-12 AHS (non-Indigenous).
Data from the 2011-13 AHS/AATSIHS for BMI is based on measured BMI and is not directly comparable to data from the 2004-05 NATSIHS/NHS which is based on self-reported BMI.
Data from the AATSIHS are available for very remote areas. The AHS 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 2004-05; target year is 2031.
