Mortality and life expectancy of Indigenous Australians 2008 to 2012
This report provides an overview of current patterns and trends in mortality and life expectancy among Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. Circulatory diseases were the leading cause of death of Indigenous Australians for the period 2008–2012 (representing 26% of Indigenous deaths), followed by cancer (20%) and injury (15%). There have been significant declines in overall Indigenous mortality rates as well as mortality rates from circulatory diseases and respiratory diseases between 2001 and 2012. However, there has been little improvement in Indigenous mortality from other causes such as cancer and injury over this period.
Estimating the prevalence of osteoporosis in Australia
This report presents information about the prevalence and impact of osteoporosis in Australians aged 50 and over. A broad range of data sources show that osteoporosis prevalence markedly increases with age and is more common in women than in men. Osteoporosis is one of several risk factors for minimal trauma fracture, with minimal trauma fracture of the hip being one of the most serious possible outcomes of osteoporosis. Although the rate of minimal trauma hip fracture for people aged 50 and over has decreased over the last ten years, the number of hip fractures continues to increase due to the increasing number of older adults in Australia.
National Community Services Data Dictionary, version 8, 2014
The National Community Services Data Dictionary (NCSDD) provides national data standards for the community services sector. This latest version (version 8) reflects changes to data standards between July 2012 and end-April 2014. Two data set specifications, 2 data element clusters, 96 data elements, 2 classifications and 8 glossary items have been added to the NCSDD.

Transition care for older people leaving hospital examines the outcomes for the 87,000 people who received care under the Transition Care Program from 2005–06 to 2012–13. More than three-quarters of care recipients improved their level of functioning. Two-thirds of care recipients living in the community had not entered aged care 12 months after finishing their first episode of care under the program; and more than half did not enter residential aged care at all over the life of the program to June 2013.
Youth justice orders and supervision periods: 2012-13
This fact sheet summarises information on the number of supervised orders administered by state and territory youth justice agencies, and the periods of supervision experienced by young people in 2012-13.

similar orders, suspended detention, and parole or supervised
release (after being proven guilty in a court).Young people may be supervised under
multiple orders of different types at the same time, and
community-based orders may be interrupted by time spent in detention.

They may also be sentenced to a period of detention if proven guilty in a court.Young people may be referred to unsentenced detention by either police (pre-court) or a court (known as remand). Police-referred pre-court detention is not available in all states and territories, and most young people in unsentenced detention are on remand.
Sentenced detention: 2012-13

Comparisons between the youth and adult justice systems: 2012–13
This fact sheet summarises some of the key similarities and differences between young people and adults in the justice systems in Australia.In all states and territories, young people aged 10 and over can be charged with a criminal offence. Separate justice systems exist for young people and adults, each with specific legislation. In most cases, the upper age limit in the youth justice system is 17 at the time of the offence (16 in Queensland). Some young people aged 18 and over are under youth justice supervision; reasons for this include their age at the time of the offence, continuation of their supervision once they turn 18, and their vulnerability or immaturity.
Comparisons between Australian and international youth justice systems: 2012–13
This fact sheet examines Australian and international approaches to youth justice.
Mortality inequalities in Australia 2009–2011
Despite relatively high standards of health and health care in Australia, not all Australians fare equally well in terms of their health and longevity. Substantial mortality inequalities exist in the Australian population, in terms of overall mortality, and for most leading causes of death, and these inequalities are long-standing.
