View Closing the Gap Time Series Atlas: Maps

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 Areas and Indigenous Regions level.

View Housing Atlas: Maps

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 housing circumstances and health outcomes.

View Indigenous Status Comparison, Social Health Atlas: Maps

The Indigenous Status Comparison: Social Health Atlas of Australia presents data on a range of population characteristics, including demography, socioeconomic status and some health-related aspects of the population. These data compares indicators between the Indigenous and non-Indigenous population in Australia.

View Potentially Preventable Hospitalisations: Maps

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. It follows on from work by Duckett and Griffiths (2016) published as “Perils of Place: identifying hotspots of health inequalities”. This study provides a framework to identify the existence of areas with persistently high PPH rates over time known as “PPH hotspots” and provides core principles to highlight areas where interventions can be targeted. This new analysis, and its presentation in geographical maps, heat map graphs and data sheets, will provide information that is useful to the various levels of the health system, from state and territory health agencies to local and regional health networks and boards, PHNs and primary care practitioners, in working together with an aim to reducing the level of PPHs through improved primary health care outcomes at the local area level.

View Regional Centres Atlas: Maps

The Centre for Aboriginal Economic Policy Research (CAEPR) 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. Using the Indigenous Atlas produced by PHIDU, this atlas expands on the demographic, mobility and socioeconomic measures used in CAEPR's original 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’.
