National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Survey 2004-05

The 2004-05 National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Survey (NATSIHS) is the largest health survey of Indigenous Australians conducted by the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS). The sample size was 10,439 persons (or about one in 45 of the total Indigenous population), considerably larger than the supplementary Indigenous samples in the 1995 and 2001 National Health Surveys (NHS(I)). This survey, which was conducted in remote and non-remote areas throughout Australia, was designed to collect a range of information from Indigenous Australians about health related issues, including health status, risk factors and actions, and socioeconomic circumstances.

The survey aims were to:

provide broad information about the health of Indigenous Australians, by remoteness, and at the national and state/territory levels; allow for the relationships across the health status, risk factors and health related actions of Indigenous Australians to be explored; provide comparisons over time in the health of Indigenous Australians; and provide comparisons with results for the non-Indigenous population from the 2001 and 2004-05 National Health Survey (NHS).
