From the Paper:

"Overall the health of the population in Australia is considered excellent (Eagar, Garrett & Lin, 2001). However, those that would evaluate the health of wealthy urbanites adopt this sentiment or the citizens densely packed into Australia's major urban centers. There are however discrepancies in the status of health as one looks at other populations that inhabit the country. The indigenous population in Australia for example, is "believed to rank among the worst in the world" (Eagar, Garrett & Lin, 2001:33). Disparities in health status also exist within the country that are related to the following: gender, ethnicity, age, geographic region and socioeconomic status (Eagar, Garrett, & Lin, 2001:33)."
