ABSTRACT
The article presents a multilevel analysis conducted on examining the relationship between neighbourhood poverty and public hospital utilization. It mentions that estimated life expectancy at birth for Indigenous Australians is 10-11 years less than the general Australian population. It reports that lifting socio-economic indexes for areas (SEIFA) scores for family income and education/occupation was sufficient to overcome the excess hospital utilization among the Indigenous population.
