Closing the Gap Time Series Atlas

View Closing the Gap Time Series Atlas

Closing the Gap seeks to improve the lives of all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians. This Time Series Atlas focuses on the Closing the Gap targets (targets as at February 2018) for the Aboriginal population, with comparisons with the non-Indigenous population, at the Indigenous Area (IARE) level.

Housing Atlas

View Housing Atlas

Adequate and affordable housing is an important determinant of health. This report explores the housing circumstances of different population groups, drawing on small area geographic data from the 2016 Census of Population and Housing, health surveys, income support payment datasets, and administrative health datasets (e.g., perinatal statistics, potentially preventable hospitalisations, mortality) to examine area-level associations between the housing circumstances of different population groups and between housing circumstances and health outcomes.

Indigenous Status Comparison: Social Health Atlas of Australia

View Indigenous Status Comparison: Social Health Atlas

The Indigenous Status Comparison: Social Health Atlas of Australia, presents selected topics and compares indicators between Indigenous and non-Indigenous populations in Australia. This is available by Indigenous Areas, including total for the Greater Capital City Statistical Areas/Rest of States/NT; and States/Territories.

Regional Centres Atlas

View Regional Centres Atlas

The Centre for Aboriginal Economic Research Policy has developed the concept of Regional Centres, as an ‘important but often overlooked set of areas with particular policy and population dynamics.’ These 46 areas have a total population of between 10,000 and 250,000 with at least 1,000 Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander usual residents.

Regional centres tend to have a relatively young Indigenous population when compared to the non-Indigenous population in those centres and to the Indigenous population in the rest of Australia. In addition, Regional Centres contain significantly more Indigenous Australians overall than remote Indigenous communities and make up a greater share of the population than in Australia’s major cities. In spite of this, policy interest is very rarely devoted to individual regional centres or to regional centres as a separate geographic grouping.

Using data previously published in the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Social Health Atlas, this atlas expands on the demographic, mobility and socioeconomic measures used in CAEPR's paper to further include indicators under the following themes, ‘Demographic and social indicators’, Health status, disease prevention, disability and deaths, and ‘ Use and provision of health and welfare services’.
