Abstract: This is the fifth report against the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Performance Framework (HPF). The HPF monitors progress in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health outcomes, health system performance and the broader determinants of health. The health of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples is improving for a number of measures, although there remain many areas where further concerted effort will be needed to achieve improvements in health outcomes. Between the 2006 and 2011 censuses there was a 30% increase in the estimated Indigenous Australian population, which has led to a major reworking of all of the trends involving population rates. The other key feature of this report is that it includes updates for the new national health survey results for 2012–13 (the previous HPF report was only able to use data from the 2004–05 survey). Data for all jurisdictions have now been included for hospital data (the last HPF report only included data from NSW, Victoria, Qld, WA, SA and the NT). Data quality limitations and the small size of many estimates affect our ability to effectively monitor Indigenous health and the performance of the health system.
