Abstract

This paper covers a Roundtable Discussion about available data on indigenous populations included in large health and aging studies in Australia during the 2010 Australian Association of Gerontology Northern Territories, "The Ageing North," Conference. The intended focus was to identify available health and well-being data on Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander populations including health transitions and morbidity in adults and older adults; to discuss the consultation process that would be needed to decide if the data can be analysed; and if so, how to proceed with examination of those data. It is recognised that indigenous participation is essential in commencing dialogue with the data custodians.
