This document was added or updated on 13/06/2014.

Released four additional data cubes containing information on selected health characteristics of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people for Indigenous Regions. Topics are: self-assessed health, smoking, measured body mass (overweight/obesity) and daily fruit and vegetable intake. Key Findings for Indigenous Regions and a glossary item for Indigenous Regions have also been added.

Amendment made to the structure of the Australian Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Survey page to direct users to the release schedule in the AATSIHS and AHS Users' Guides.

- In the 'Comparison of First Results and Updated Results' page, the descriptor for some topics has been changed to be consistent with the title of topics in the publication.
- In the 'Overweight and Obesity' topic, a new subtitle has been inserted for 'Children aged 2–14 years' in the section 'How do these rates compare with the rates for non-Indigenous people?'. In addition, a textual error in comparing obesity rates for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander boys and girls aged 10–14 years with non-Indigenous boys and girls has been fixed.

- In the Daily intake of fruit and vegetables topic, the second iteration of a duplicated paragraph was removed and the population descriptor of the title of a graph was corrected.
