  • About this Release

This paper presents the methods used to explore the feasibility of synthesising estimates of Indigenous child health and wellbeing for regions in Queensland and the Northern Territory. This project was commissioned by the Telethon Institute of Child Health Research (TICHR) with funding provided by the Rio Tinto Aboriginal Child Health partnership, a collaboration between Western Australia, Queensland, Northern Territory and Australian governments and TICHR.

The aim of the project was to explore the feasibility of deriving estimates of Indigenous child health for Queensland and the Northern Territory using data from the Western Australian Aboriginal Child Health Survey (WAACHS) and other national datasets, such as the Census of Population and Housing. The WAACHS was conducted by TICHR during 2000-01 and provides information on health, mental health, education and other socioeconomic outcomes for Indigenous children.
