  1. Hospital admissions of aborigines and non-aborigines in Western Australia, 1977-1988.

    Article - En anglais

    Aborigines were admitted to hospital in Western Australia 2.8 times as frequently as other persons in 1977-1988.

    Their highest relative admission rates were in the 0-5 years age group, mostly for respiratory and gastrointestinal infections.

    Relative admission rates (all ages) for some categories were:

    • infectious and parasitic, 4 to 10-fold;

    • respiratory, 5-fold;

    • nervous system, 4-fold;

    • injury and poisoning, 3 to 5-fold;

    • mental disorders, double the non-Aboriginal rate.

    Admissions for respiratory illnesses were consistently much higher in Aborigines of all ages.
