ABOUT THIS RELEASE
Compares the health of those living in rural and remote zones with that of those living in the metropolitan zone by analysing a wide range of national health data sources, including death registrations, hospital statistics and results from the 1995 ABS National Health Survey. It quantifies the impact of indigenous health on health differentials between metropolitan, rural and remote zones using mortality data from the jurisdictions with reliable registration of indigenous deaths in South Australia, Northern Territory and Western Australia.
The report will be an invaluable resource for researchers, policy makers and educators who wish to understand the health problems and service needs of those living in rural and remote Australia.
This publication is produced by the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare, with an agreement to sell copies through the ABS Bookshop.
