Identifying and definitional attributes
|Metadata item type:||Indicator|
|Short name:||PB e–By 2018, reduce the national smoking rate to 10 per cent of the population and halve the Indigenous smoking rate, 2021|
|Registration status:||Health, Standard 03/07/2020|
Proportion of adults who are current daily smokers.
|Indicator set:||National Healthcare Agreement (2021) Health, Standard 19/11/2020|
|Outcome area:||Prevention Health, Standard 07/07/2010|
Collection and usage attributes
|Population group age from:|
Daily smoking: Currently smokes tobacco, including one or more manufactured (packet) cigarettes, roll-your-own cigarettes, cigars or pipes, per day. This excludes chewing tobacco, electronic cigarettes (and similar), nicotine patches and smoking of non-tobacco products.
Rates are directly age-standardised to the 2001 Australian population.
Presented as a percentage.
95% confidence intervals and relative standard errors calculated for rates.
100 × (Numerator ÷ Denominator)
Number of persons aged 18 and over who are a current daily smoker
|Numerator data elements:|
Population aged 18 and over
|Denominator data elements:|
State and territory, by Indigenous status.

Most recent data available for 2021 National Healthcare Agreement performance reporting: 2017–18 (total population, non-Indigenous: NHIH); 2018–19 (Indigenous only: NATSIHS).
NO NEW DATA FOR 2021 REPORTING
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.
Data for non-Indigenous people are from a pooled data set — the NHIH. For the 2017–18 NHS cycle, the smoking questionnaire module was used in both the NHS and the 2017–18 SIH to produce a larger sample size for more accurate smoker status estimates.
While the NHIH was a national sample, the sample size for the Indigenous population was too small to allow for reliable estimates for the Indigenous population. Thus, for Indigenous and non-Indigenous comparisons, data for the non-Indigenous population are obtained from the NHIH (2017–18) while data for the Indigenous population are obtained from the NATSIHS (2018–19). The non-Indigenous data are obtained by subtracting information pertaining to the Indigenous population from the NHIH.
