Health benefits of education in Australia: Indigenous/non-Indigenous comparisons

10 Aug 2005
Description

Indigenous Australians are much less likely to finish high school, and for those that do, less likely go on to university or other studies. Nicholas Biddle looks at the relationship between education and health for Indigenous Australians, comparing it to similar associations for the non-Indigenous population. For all health measures used, those with lower education levels have significantly worse health outcomes. Interestingly, education is found to have a significantly different magnitude of association for some measures across Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians.
