All rates in this report, including historical rates, have been calculated using population estimates based on the 2016 Census. All Indigenous rates in this report are calculated using the Indigenous population estimates and projections, based on the 2016 Census.
Crude rates are calculated using the Australian Bureau of Statistics estimated resident population (ERP) at the start of the range (for example, rates for 2011–12 were calculated using the ERP at 30 June 2011). Rates for 2019–20 data were calculated using the preliminary ERP at 30 June 2018.
Minor adjustments in rates may occur between publications reflecting revision of the estimated resident population by the Australian Bureau of Statistics.
Population rates were adjusted (standardised) for age to enhance the comparison between populations over time that have different age structures. Specifically, direct standardisation has been used where age-specific rates are applied to a standard population (the ERP as at 30 June 2001, unless otherwise specified). This effectively accounts for the influence of age structure on the calculated rate and is referred to as the age-standardised rate. In this publication direct age-standardisation has been used to compare Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander and non-Indigenous Australians (AIHW 2011).
Rate ratios are mainly used to compare Indigenous and non-Indigenous rates and provide a measure of the level of Indigenous over-representation. A rate ratio is calculated by dividing the client rate for Indigenous Australian by the client rate for non-Indigenous Australians.
The average annual rates of change or growth rates have been calculated as geometric rates:
Average rate of change = ((Pn/Po)^(1/n) -1) x 100
Pn= value in the later time period
Po= value in the earlier time period
n = number of years between the 2 time periods.
