NATIONAL HEALTH SURVEY: ABORIGINAL AND TORRES STRAIT ISLANDER RESULTS

Indigenous results from the 2001 National Health Survey (NHS) were released on 20 November 2002 in National Health Survey, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Results (cat. no. 4715.0). The publication focuses on health status measures, health service use and lifestyle factors which affect people's health. Information for the non-Indigenous population, and selected data from the 1995 NHS, are also included. A National Health Survey: Users Guide, 2001 is also being compiled to provide definitional material and sample copies of the questionnaires. The guide will be available on the ABS web site and is expected for release in January 2003. For more information contact Cathy Williams on (02) 6252 7996, email cathy.williams@abs.gov.au.
