This report contains detailed analyses against indicators in the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Performance Framework (the HPF). The HPF is designed to provide the basis to monitor the impact of the National Strategic Framework for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health (NSFATSH) and inform policy analyses, planning and program implementation. The HPF consists of 71 indicators covering three tiers—health status and outcomes, determinants of health and health systems performance (see Figure 1).
Due to data quality issues related to Indigenous identification, hospitalisations and mortality data for Indigenous Australians are reported for some jurisdictions only and this may affect the completeness of data presented in this report. Hospitalisations data are reported for New South Wales, Victoria, Queensland, Western Australia, South Australia and the Northern Territory while mortality data are reported for New South Wales, Queensland, South Australia, Western Australia and the Northern Territory.
