  13. Prisoners • Census forms did not go to individual prisoners • Prison staff filled out based on admin records • Indigeneity, birthplace, age – • have admin data comparability issues • Other indicators — Not Stated

  14. Indigenous Hospital Record Project • Do Indigenous people identify in hospital admissions? • Ideally Census Data enhancement would link records between census and hospital admissions. • Please pleaseplease! • Next best approach is to link hospitals

  15. Linking hospitals • AIHW, through State health departments, tells us about people who spent census night as a patient in a public hospital: • Hospital = Princeton‑Plainsboro Teaching Hospital • SLA = “West Windsor, New Jersey” • Admitted on or before 8 August 2006 • Separated on or after 9 August 2006 • 420 People including 25 Indigenous • Census tells us about people who spent censusnight as a patient in a public hospital • SLA = “West Windsor, New Jersey” • Type of Non Private dwelling = Public hospital (not psychiatric) • Residential status in NPD = Guest, patient, inmate, other resident. • 400 People, including 30 Indigenous

  16. Comparing patients counts by SLA

  17. Indigenous Proportion of patients

  18. Indigenous proportion of patients — Remoteness

  19. Indigenous proportion of patients — State

  20. Indigenous identification in hospital separations data-quality report

  21. Conclusions • Census is phenomenally powerful • Use your imagination • Let us use the power • Table builder needs more power • Ethnicity of parents of 17 years olds in school • Really identify Disabled group homes • Where do hospital patients usually live • Census data enhancements
