Overcrowding and Indigenous health in Australia

6 Oct 2005
Description

Alison Booth and Nick Carroll use data from the 2001 National Health Survey to examine the association between overcrowding and the self-assessed health of Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians. They find that overcrowding of adults appears to be associated with worse health and explains approximately 30 per cent of the health gap between the Indigenous population living in remote areas and the non-Indigenous population.
