Information was collected for non-remote persons aged 15 years and over in the National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Survey (NATSIHS).
Non-remote respondents aged 15 years and over were asked whether they have a DVA treatment entitlement card, and if so, which colour is the card; white, gold or other.
Respondents were then asked if they were covered by any of the following government health concession cards:
Multiple cards could be reported. Interviewers were supplied with supplementary information about the cards to assist if queried by respondents.

Points to be considered in interpreting data for this topic include the following:
Comparability with 2004-05 National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Survey (NATSIHS)
Data for common items are considered directly comparable between the 2004-05 NATSIHS and 2012-13 NATSIHS. However, the 2004-05 NATSIHS did not collect DVA card information and therefore cannot be compared.
Comparability with the 2011-12 National Health Survey (NHS)
Data for common items are considered directly comparable between the 2011-12 NHS and 2012-13 NATSIHS. However, in the 2011-12 NHS only persons aged 18 years and over were asked questions about Government concession/entitlement cards. Furthermore, the questions were asked irrespective of locality, thus remote persons were asked health card questions. Both these points should be considered in any analysis between the surveys.
