Our Covid-19 related resources page includes a list of some existing resources which may be useful when researching issues related to COVID-19.
National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health data principles: A set of national data principles endorsed by the Australian Health Ministers' Advisory Council (AHMAC) that aims to guide and improve the use of information relating to the health of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians. The principles set out a culturally respectful foundation for the collection, storage and use of Indigenous health and health-related information.
National Indigenous Australians Agency: An Australian Government agency that is responsible for Indigenous affairs policy and program delivery across the Australian Government.
Principles on the use of direct age-standardisation in administrative data collections for measuring the gap between Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians: A report that recommends that the direct method of age-standardisation be used for purposes of comparing health and welfare outcome measures (e.g. mortality rates, life expectancy, hospital separation rates, disease incidence rates etc.) of Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians. The report provides consistency and guidance on when and how to use the direct age-standardisation method and under what circumstances it should not be used.
