LONG-TERM HEALTH CONDITIONS
Among Indigenous males, the pattern for reporting at least one long-term health condition increased with age and was highest for the 55 and over age group (96%).
Indigenous males living in remote areas were less likely to report a long-term health condition than Indigenous males living non-remote (53% compared to 66%).
When comparing Indigenous males to non-Indigenous males, the rates for reporting at least one long-term health condition were similar. Non-Indigenous males had only slightly higher rates than Indigenous males for most ages, except for the 35 to 44 group.
