Notes
  1. While the 2020–21 NHS data are currently available, the 2020–21 data are considered a break in time series from previous NHS collections and cannot be used for comparisons over time. The survey was collected during the COVID-19 pandemic which significantly changed the data collection, and impacted response rates and sample representativeness for sub-populations.
  2. This measure uses ABS National Health Survey (NHS) data for all reporting, with the exception of reporting results for Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander people. Results for Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander people are sourced from the ABS National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Survey (NATSIHS).
