Estimates of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians, June 2011 – ABS – 30 August 2013

3238.0.55.001

“This product contains final estimates of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander, non-Indigenous and total populations of Australia at 30 June 2011, for various geographies.

Estimates are disaggregated by age (5-year age groups, with some single year of age data available) and sex for state and territory, Remoteness Areas and Indigenous Regions. Only total estimates for Statistical Areas Level 2 are available.

The estimates of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander and non-Indigenous populations presented in this publication are based on 2011 Census of Population and Housing counts adjusted for net undercount as measured by the Post Enumeration Survey. The extent of undercoverage of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians in the 2011 Census and the relatively small sample size of the Post Enumeration Survey to adjust for that undercoverage means the estimates should be interpreted with a degree of caution.

Description of the methods used to produce the estimates are contained in the technical note in this product.”

“Disability, Ageing and Carers, Australia: Disability and Long Term Health Conditions, 2009 (cat. no. 4433.0) presents a suite of data cubes examining the relationship between disability and long term health conditions. The tables include broad level information on the numbers of people with long term health conditions in each of the States of Australia (ACT and NT are not included). They also include information on some of the most common long term health conditions, the degree to which these restrict people with disability and the causes underlying main conditions.

Several tables provide detailed information on five impairment groups – sensory, intellectual, physical, psychological and head injury (an impairment is where there is loss or abnormality in body structure or the way in which the body or mind work). Impairment groups are examined with relation to living arrangements and to the restrictions particular impairments place on daily living (personal care, schooling and employment). There is also information on the need for, and receipt of, assistance in relation to impairment groups.

Several tables provide information on specific age groups – children (0-14 years), working age adults (15-64 years) and people aged 65 years and over.”

Deaths, Australia, 2010 – Australian Bureau of Statistics ABS – released 10 November 2011

Extract from the media release:

“Australian’s life expectancy among the highest in the world

Australian life expectancy for both males and females continues to be amongst the highest in the world, according to the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS).

A boy born today can expect to live an average of 79.5 years, while a girl can expect to live to 84.0 years. Having survived to age 60, men could expect to live another 23 years and women another 26 years.

Since 1990, life expectancy has increased by 6 years for men and just under 4 years for women, reflecting the decrease in death rates over time. The increase in life expectancy is one of the factors contributing to the ageing of Australia’s population.

Death rates have continued to decline over the past 20 years. In 2010, the standardised death rate was the lowest on record at 5.7 deaths per 1000 people. In 1990, the standardised death rate was 8.6 deaths per 1000 people.

The infant mortality rate decreased slightly, from 4.3 deaths per 1,000 births in 2009 to 4.1 in 2010.

There were nearly 143,500 deaths registered in 2010 (73,500 men and 70,000 women).

In 2010, death rates were lowest in the major cities (5.7 deaths per 1,000 standard population) and highest in very remote areas (8.1 deaths per 1,000 standard population).”

“Socio-Economic Indexes for Areas (SEIFA) summarise the socio-economic conditions of an area using relevant information from the Census. The SEIFA indexes are widely used measures of relative socio-economic advantage and disadvantage at the Census Collector District level. Using 2006 Census data, this paper explores individual level diversity within areas by constructing and analysing two person-based socio-economic indexes: one of relative disadvantage and the other of relative advantage and disadvantage. In addition to illustrating and measuring the diversity of socio-economic advantage and disadvantage within area level SEIFA, the paper serves to highlight the advantages of SEIFA when compared with individual level indexes of relative socio-economic advantage and disadvantage.”

1248.0 – Australian Standard Classification of Drugs of Concern, 2011 – ABS – 6 July 2011

“OVERVIEW

The Australian Standard Classification of Drugs of Concern (ASCDC) is the Australian statistical standard for classifying data relating to drugs which are considered to be of concern in Australian society. The ASCDC is essentially a classification of type of drug of concern based on the chemical structure, mechanism of action and effect on physiological activity of the drugs of concern. The classification of Type of Drug is described as the ‘main classification structure’ throughout the ASCDC document. The ASCDC is intended for use in the collection, classification, storage and dissemination of all statistical, administrative and service delivery data relating to drugs of concern.

There are two additional classifications, Form of Drug and Method of Drug Use.

The ASCDC assists government planners, policy analysts and social researchers by providing a consistent framework for the classification of drug-related data. The use of the standard definitions, classifications and coding procedures detailed in the ASCDC helps to ensure the comparability and compatibility of data derived from a range of different statistical, administrative and service provision systems at both the state and national level.”

Just under one in five (18.5%) Australians had a disability in 2009, according to new figures released today by the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS). This represents approximately 4.0 million people.

The main disabling conditions reported in 2009 were back problems (15.6% of all persons with a disability) and arthritis (14.8%).

Between 2003 and 2009 the proportion of people with a disability decreased by 1.5 percentage points, mainly due to decreases in the prevalence of arthritis, back pain and asthma. However, the number of people with a disability has increased along with population growth.”

Disability statistics define disability and explain how a high proportion of disabilities relate to long-term health conditions. In contrast, health statistics measure the health status of the population, health related aspects of lifestyle, other health risk factors and the use of health services or other actions people had recently taken for their health1.

social and demographic indicators;

ABS launches most comprehensive health survey ever conducted

3 March, 2011 Embargo: 11.30 am (Canberra time) 31/2011

“In the next few days, the ABS will commence the first Australian Health Survey (AHS), the biggest health survey ever conducted in Australia.

The AHS builds on previous health surveys allowing comparisons of health information over time such as obesity, smoking, health conditions and how we manage our health.

The AHS will collect new information about what we eat and drink, how active we are and biomedical measures. These new biomedical measures will reveal new insights into heart and kidney disease, diabetes and other chronic conditions by examining health risk factors such as cholesterol, glucose and sodium levels. The survey will be able to compare these biomedical risk factors with aspects of our lifestyle for those that are healthy and those who are not.”

“Less heart disease, more dementia: ABS

The proportion of Australian deaths by Heart disease has decreased over the last ten years, according to figures released today by the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS). In 1999, 22% of all deaths in Australia were due to heart disease, compared to 16% of all deaths in 2008.

Despite this decline, however, heart disease remained the biggest killer in Australia, responsible for 16% of all deaths in 2008.

Over the same period, deaths due to Dementia and Alzheimer’s disease more than doubled. The continued increase in deaths from Dementia and Alzheimer’s disease has seen this cause of death overtake Trachea and lung cancers as the third leading cause of death in Australia.”

“This publication presents summary results from the 2008 National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Social Survey (NATSISS). The survey was conducted by the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) from August 2008 to April 2009, collecting information from approximately 13,300 Indigenous Australians living in private dwellings in remote and non-remote areas, including discrete communities.

The 2008 NATSISS provides information on a range of demographic, social, environmental and economic indicators, including: personal and household characteristics; geography; language and cultural activities; social networks and support; health and disability; education; employment; financial stress; income; transport; personal safety; and housing. Information from the 2008 NATSISS contributes to existing data on Indigenous people and the formulation of government policies and legislation.

Topics summarised in this release include language and culture, social networks and support, health, education, work, housing and financial stress. More detailed results for these and other topics from the survey, including additional data cubes, will be released on the ABS website in 2010. “
