Interactive data visualisation: Self-reported long-term health conditions by country of birth
This interactive data visualisation (Figure 4.7) presents data on self-reported long-term health conditions in humanitarian entrants and other permanent migrants by country of birth.
Reporting by country of birth reflects the recorded country the person was born in. This does not necessarily reflect a person's ethnicity, nationality, or religious group. This is particularly relevant for humanitarian entrants who may be born in refugee camps in countries of asylum.
The permanent migrant comparison group may differ by country of birth, for example, a higher proportion of other permanent migrants from Afghanistan who arrive on family visas may have a more refugee-like background than other permanent migrants from Bhutan who are more likely to arrive on skilled visas.
How to interpret the interactive data visualisation
- Age-standardised proportion: the percentage of humanitarian entrants or other permanent migrants from a selected country of birth who self-reported a long-term health condition, adjusted for the age structure of the population.
- Proportion: the percentage of humanitarian entrants or other permanent migrants from a selected country of birth who self-reported a long-term health condition.
The following data visualisation (Figure 4.7) presents a bar chart. The data can be filtered by the following:
- long-term health condition (drop-down menu)
- country of birth (drop-down menu)
- measure (x2 radio buttons)
- age-standardised proportion

Figure 4.7: Self-reported long-term health conditions by country of birth, 2021
Humanitarian entrants from Iraq and Syria had the highest reported age-standardised rate of diabetes.
- ‘Proportion’ is the percentage of humanitarian entrants or other permanent migrants from a selected country of birth who self-reported a long-term health condition in the 2021 Census.
- ‘Age-standardised proportion’ is the hypothetical percentage of people with a long-term health condition that would have been observed if population groups had the same age structure. The population standard used was the 2001 Australian Standard Population.
- Data were not presented and marked as ‘n.p.’ (not published) when suppression was applied to manage confidentiality and when the number of events or the size of a population were not sufficient to produce reliable estimates.
