Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Performance Framework 2012 reports (AIHW)

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Performance Framework 2012 report: New South Wales

This report shows, for example, that death rates for avoidable causes and circulatory diseases have declined in NSW since 2001, but almost half of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander mothers smoke during pregnancy and unemployment rates continue to remain higher for Indigenous people than for non-Indigenous people.

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Performance Framework 2012 report: Queensland

This report provides the latest information on how Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in Queensland are faring according to a range of indicators on health status, determinants of health and health system performance. Indicators are based on the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Performance Framework. The report highlights the main areas of improvement and continuing concern. For example, while death rates for avoidable causes and circulatory diseases have declined since 2001, just over half of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander mothers smoke during pregnancy and there has been no improvement in incidence rates of treated end-stage renal disease in recent years.

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Performance Framework 2012 report: Victoria

This report shows, for example, that while health assessments in Victoria have increased significantly and immunisation coverage for Indigenous children is similar to non-Indigenous children by the age of 2, the incidence of treated end-stage renal disease is 4 times the rate for non-Indigenous Australians and unemployment rates continue to remain higher for Indigenous people than for non-Indigenous people.

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Performance Framework 2012 report: South Australia

This report shows, for example, that while death rates in South Australia for Indigenous infants and Indigenous people of all ages have declined since 1991, more than half of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander mothers smoke during pregnancy and unemployment rates continue to remain higher for Indigenous people than for non-Indigenous people.

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Performance Framework 2012 report: Western Australia

This report shows, for example, that while death rates for avoidable causes and circulatory diseases have declined since 1997 in Western Australia, about half of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander mothers smoke during pregnancy and there has been no improvement in incidence rates of treated end-stage renal disease in recent years.
