This Fact sheet describes the age and socioeconomic background of people presenting to an Emergency Department for mental health-related conditions, drawing attention to differences in the extent to which these services are used by different population groups in the capital cities. More current data for South Australia shows the ongoing, and growing, impact to June 2021 on children and young people and the lower rate in the last year of presentations of people aged 65 years and over. Both of these trends point to concerns for the future health and wellbeing of the population.

The updated Double map atlas of vaccination rates for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people shows the increase in vaccination rates over time, with increases over the month to 13 October now included for Australia, the states and territories and by region. It also shows the overall rates and the same information for the total Australian population.

Dr Kerry Chant, Chief Health Officer, NSW Health said there needs to be a "strong equity focus" in order to achieve the 90 per cent target [1]. The extent of the challenge to achieve a high vaccination rate across all population groups is highlighted by the variations between LGAs across Greater Sydney and Regional New South Wales. However, of greater concern are the marked variations within many LGAs, pointing to the need to have a strong population health focus if equity in vaccination and returning to a more open way of life is to be achieved.

Concerns have been raised about the low rates of vaccination in Aboriginal communities; these low rates are evident in regional data for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people first released by the Australian Government Department of Health on 1 September 2021 and now included in this atlas.

The number of deaths in general and by specific cause are indicators of a population’s health and safety. As a population health measure, areas with consistently higher death rates demonstrate areas of inequality and this phenomenon can be deeply entrenched over time. This project aims to highlight the geographic variation and temporal persistence of the rate of selected causes of death at the small area level across Australia.

The Older people in Australia: Social Health Atlas of Australia, presents data on a range of population characteristics, including demography, socioeconomic status, health status and risk factors, and use of health and welfare services. This is available by Population Health Areas (PHA), Local Government Areas (LGA), Primary Health Networks (PHN), Aged Care Planning Regions (ACPR), Remoteness Area and Quintiles of Socioeconomic Disadvantage of Area.

Being healthy in childhood and as young people provides an important foundation for later life. This Child and Youth Social Health Atlas of Australia draws together data from other Social Health Atlases and unpublished data for those aged from 0 to 24 years. As such, it seeks to set the data on health status, use of health services and health outcomes alongside the demographic, social and economic characteristics of this population group in the communities where they live across Australia.

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.

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.
