This report aims to provide a comprehensive picture of the health and welfare of Australia’s Indigenous population, presenting the latest information on a range of topics including key demographic and economic characteristics, factors that influence health, main conditions causing ill health and mortality, life expectancy and mortality patterns, service use, and health and welfare expenditure. Some of the links between education, employment and health are also explored, as are links between selected risk factors and health. The report places a particular emphasis on describing differences among Indigenous Australians that are associated with living in very remote areas.
