Life expectancy of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander population

New draft life tables suggest that life expectancy of Indigenous people may be less in the eastern States than in South Australia, Western Australia and the Northern Territory. Comments are welcome on ABS Demography Working Paper 2000/2 : Draft Experimental Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Abridged Life Tables, Australia and States/Territories, 1995-97. The paper can be accessed on the ABS web site at www.abs.gov.au and select Themes/Demography/ABS Demography Working Papers.
