Health Service District Population Projections Update
The Health Service District (HSD) profiles in Chapter 6 of Health Determinants Queensland 2004
included population projections derived from the 1996 census. Since then, population
projections for districts using the 2001 census have been released. The purpose of this document
is to provide an update for the population projections for each of the district profiles (section 6.4).
|Health Determinants Queensland 2004 is the most recent Queensland Health report on the breadth of the determinants of health. More recent reporting of health status, including risk and protective behaviours was released in The health of Queenslanders 2008.Prevention of Chronic Disease: Report of the Chief Health Officer Queensland and The health of Queenslanders 2006: Report of the Chief Health Officer Queensland. Health Determinants Queensland 2004 remains a valuable resource on population health information for Queensland Health, as reported in the July 2007 evaluation. There was a consensus among key stakeholders that the report remains valuable as a broad summary of health indicators and their association with various health outcomes based on existing and quality data. While some information presented in the report was perceived to have become out-of-date, key stakeholders indicated that they have continued to use the report for background knowledge and as a source of reference for advocacy, planning documents, submissions, funding briefs and, to a lesser extent, service planning, priority-setting and decision-making.Evidence for the usage of the report can also be seen in the hits on the website each month, indicating that the report has continued to be a relevant and widely accessed source of population health information by both internal and external users.|
