The Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Performance Framework 2014 reports include a detailed national analysis that covers the whole of Australia, plus 6 state reports for South Australia, Western Australia, New South Wales, Victoria, Queensland, and the Northern Territory.

These reports will provide the latest information on how Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people are faring according to 68 measures in the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Performance Framework. These measures are structured under 3 categories: Tier 1-health status and outcomes; Tier 2-determinants of health; and Tier 3-health system performance.

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health performance framework 2014: data tables1

The HPF data tables support the analysis in the national and state reports. They comprise 69 Excel workbooks: one for each of the 68 HPF measures as well as demographic information. A wide range of data is presented for each measure, such as analysis by age, sex, jurisdiction, remoteness and over time. The data provided vary for each measure.

The Excel workbooks have the following structure:

  • A title sheet that outlines what is measured, the data sources, why the measure is important, and references.
  • A contents sheet that lists the tables included in each workbook, and provides table reference numbers.
  • A separate work sheet for each table, sorted by table reference numbers.
