Data in this chapter are obtained from the most up-to-date sources available including information collected in the 2001 National Health Survey (NHS) on the health status of Australians conducted by the ABS and data from the ABS Causes of Death Collection. Previous National Health Surveys were conducted in 1989-90, 1995 and 2001.

Data from the 2001 NHS presented in this chapter are based on the International Classification of Diseases, 10th revision (ICD-10). Comparisons between the Indigenous and non-Indigenous populations are presented after adjusting for their differing age structures.
