One of the greatest impacts of the coronavirus (COVID-19) in Australia has been on jobs. A major indicator of the impact of loss of jobs is the increase in the number of people receiving an unemployment benefit. In June 2019 there were just over three quarters of a million people receiving an unemployment benefit; by June 2020 this figure had more than doubled, to over one & a half million. This atlas now includes information as to the geographical distribution, by age and sex, of people presenting to emergency departments with mental health-related conditions.

Potential years of life lost (PYLL) is a measure of the sum of the potential years of life lost from deaths at 15 years (60 years), 45 years (30 years) and so on, assuming they had all lived to 74 years of age.  These data show the substantial variations in PYLL across Australia by age group (revealing the burden of premature deaths among young people) and cause of death (including the large numbers of years of life lost from suicide).
These data are available across all atlases.

The provision of timely and effective primary health care to Indigenous people is one option to manage a population whose health status is far below that of non-Indigenous Australians. For example, there is a high proportion of individuals with chronic conditions which require continuous management and who have higher rates of hospitalisations and lower rates of access to primary care services.

Each increment in a person's body weight above their optimal level is associated with an increase in the risk of ill health.
Being obese has significant health, social and economic impacts, is more prevalent among disadvantaged populations and is closely related to lack of exercise and diet. Obesity increases the risk of suffering from a range of health conditions, including coronary heart disease, type 2 diabetes, some cancers, knee and hip problems, and sleep apnoea.

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

The level of Potentially Preventable Hospitalisations (PPHs) is an accepted measure of health system performance and, despite its limitations, can geographically highlight areas of concern where rates of hospitalisation are high or to investigate why in other instances rates are low. The aim of this study is to identify the geographic and temporal persistence of PPHs across Australia.

Adequate and affordable housing is an important determinant of health. The Housing Atlas explores the housing circumstances of different population groups, drawing on small area geographic data from the 2016 Census of Population and Housing,and other datasets to examine area-level associations between the housing circumstances of different population groups and housing circumstances and health outcomes.
