The Health and Welfare of Australia's Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples, Oct 2010 (ABS)

The Health and Welfare of Australia's Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples, Oct 2010 is the latest comprehensive review of Indigenous health by the Australian Bureau of Statistics.

Alcohol and smoking remain major health risk factors, although smoking rates have declined.
