Information from the Australian Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Survey (AATSIHS) Core Content was stored electronically in the form of data items. In some cases, items were formed directly from individual survey questions while in others, items were derived from answers to several questions (e.g. Body Mass Index derived from measured height and weight). Some items were derived with reference to information from other organisations such as the National Health and Medical Research Council (e.g. in relation to guidelines on fruit and vegetable consumption).
The following table shows the levels available in each Australian Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Survey, Core Content microdata products and examples of the information that could be contained on those levels. For information on the data items and related output categories available on the TableBuilder or Expanded CURF products, refer to the data item list applicable to the specific product, which are available in Excel spreadsheet format from the Downloads page of this product.

Datasets from the Australian Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Survey are hierarchical in nature. A hierarchical data file is an efficient means of storing and retrieving information which describes one to many, or many to many, relationships (e.g. respondents may have been diagnosed with more than one condition and each condition is given a condition status for whether it’s current and long-term, current but not long-term or not current). For information of the structure on individual microdata products, see the Using the TableBuilder and Using the Expanded CURF pages within this product.
