Abstract

Age-standardized comparisons of mortality rates from four causes in 14 Aboriginal reserves and communities in Queensland were examined. The 14 reserves were allocated to two groups within 10 socioenvironmental variables. The findings point to an association between Queensland Government Aboriginal policy, the administration of reserves, and the consequent mortality rates of the residents of these reserves.
