USUAL AND PREFERRED HEALTH CARE PROVIDER
Respondents who selected 'Doctor/GP' were asked if this doctor was in an Aboriginal Medical Serivce.
Respondents were further asked whether they always go to the same place, which of the above places were available in their local area, and where the respondent would like to go if they had a problem with their own health.

Points to be considered in interpreting data for this topic:
Comparability with 2004-05 National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Survey (NATSIHS)
Data for common items are not considered directly comparable between the 2004-05 NATSIHS and the 2012-13 NATSIHS. The 2004-05 NATSIHS included 'Doesn't usually seek health care' in the list of health care providers, while the 2012-13 NATSIHS excluded this category but instead included 'Community clinic' in the list of providers.
Comparability with 2008 National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Social Survey (NATSISS)
Data for common items are not considered directly comparable between the 2008 NATSISS and the 2012-13 NATSIHS. The 2008 NATSISS included a question about health care providers which was only asked for children aged 0 to 14 years of age. The question in the 2008 NATSISS identified additional health care providers compared to those listed in the 2012-13 NATSIHS question, thus the questions are not considered comparable.
Comparability with the 2011-12 National Health Survey (NHS)
Usual and preferred health care provider information was not collected in the 2011-12 NHS.
