This national statistical publication reports on the health and wellbeing of young Australians aged 12-24 years of age. This reporting is vital for the development of evidence-based youth policies. Part VII provides an overview of the health and wellbeing of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander young people and looks at key issues including:

  • health status
  • determinants of health
  • families and communities
  • socioeconomic factors
  • housing
  • health system performance.

The report also highlights areas where work is still needed.
