Errors have been detected in some of the results published in Housing and Infrastructure in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Communities, Australia, 2006 (cat. no. 4710.0), which was released on 17 April 2007. The publication is being reissued on 20 August 2007 with affected tables and associated textual references to results corrected as described below.
Expenditure data classified by size of Indigenous Housing Organisation (IHO) is being corrected to show counts of all IHO managed permanent dwellings rather than showing only those IHO managed permanent dwellings located within discrete communities as previously published. The totals for each state/territory remain unchanged. These revisions will be incorporated into tables 2.7 and 4.3.
Average income from rent, and average expenditure on repairs and maintenance estimates will be corrected. Previously published estimates inadvertently included in the denominator for these calculations the count of dwellings where income and expenditure data was not reported. These revisions will be incorporated into table 2.5 and tables 4.4 to 4.6.
While the statistics regarding health facilities presented by state and territory and by broad community size were correctly presented in tables 4.33 to 4.35, and the national data by more detailed community size groupings were correct presented in table 3.15 of 4710.0, some of the statistics by both state and detailed community size groupings for the various health facilities were missing for tables 4.11 to 4.12 and table 4.15.
The previously published estimates for access to public and community transport services inadvertently omitted some responses, which have now been corrected in tables 3.11 and 4.26.
While detailed data for childcare were correctly presented in tables 4.12 to 4.16 in 4710.0, the data were missing in table 4.11.
The number of permanent dwellings managed by IHOs was reported as 21,758 in 4710.0, and was revised to 21,854 permanent dwellings in Community Housing and Infrastructure Needs Survey Data Dictionary, Australia, 2006 (cat. no. 4710.0.55.001), which was released on 31 May 2007. These revisions affected data for Western Australia and Queensland and will be incorporated in the reissue in tables 2.1 to 2.3, 2.8 to 2.11, 4.1 to 4.2 and 4.6 to 4.8
Some statistics included in commentary have also been corrected in Chapter 3 - A profile of discrete Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Communities relating to population, sewerage and overflows, flooding and ponding, and education. There are no related errors in published tables.
