The health of Australia’s females

Females are a diverse population, with differing health behaviours, conditions and health service use across a range of characteristics. Australia's 12 million females (in 2016) experience varying health outcomes across population characteristics like Indigenous status, remoteness, socioeconomic disadvantage and age. Females also experience different health outcomes than males. A new report from the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare covers the following topics:

  • Who are Australia's females?
  • Lifestyle and risk factors of Australia’s females
  • How healthy are Australia’s females?
  • How do Australia's females access health care?
