This report uses data from national health and social surveys of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander population, conducted between 2002 and 2012-13, to examine whether associations of some key social determinants with selected health and wellbeing outcomes changed over that time.

The paper is structured as follows:

  • section 1 – introduction
  • section 2 – summarises some of the literature relating to the social determinants of health for Indigenous Australians
  • section 3 – provides an overview of the data sources used in the analysis, and describes the measures and methods used
  • section 4 – summarises key trends in social determinants, and health and wellbeing measures
  • section 5 – presents the results of multivariate analyses examining the associations between the selected social determinants and health and wellbeing outcomes
  • section 6 – contains the discussion and conclusions.
