Brief description

This dataset presents the footprint of the crude percentage of adults who have uncontrolled high blood pressure. Uncontrolled high blood pressure (measured high blood pressure) is defined as including any of the following; measured systolic blood pressure of 140 mmHg or more, or; diastolic blood pressure of 90 mmHg or more, and; irrespective of the use of blood pressure medication. As an indication of the accuracy of estimates, 95% confidence intervals were produced. These were calculated by the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) using standard error estimates of the proportion. The data spans the financial year of 2014-2015 and is aggregated to 2015 Department of Health Primary Health Network (PHN) areas, based on the 2011 Australian Statistical Geography Standard (ASGS).\n\nHealth risk factors are attributes, characteristics or exposures that increase the likelihood of a person developing a disease or health disorder. Examples of health risk factors include risky alcohol consumption, physical inactivity and high blood pressure. High-quality information on health risk factors is important in providing an evidence base to inform health policy, program and service delivery.\n\nFor further information about this dataset, visit the data source: Australian Institute of Health and Welfare - Health Risk Factors in 2014-2015 Data Tables.: https://www.aihw.gov.au/reports/risk-factors/health-risk-factors-in-2014-15/data\n\nPlease note:\n\n * AURIN has spatially enabled the original data using the Department of Health - PHN Areas.: https://www1.health.gov.au/internet/main/publishing.nsf/Content/PHN-Home\n * The health risks factors reported are known to vary with age and the different PHN area populations are known to have a range of age structures. As such, comparisons of results between the PHN areas should be made with caution because the crude rates presented do not account for these age differences.\n * Adults are defined as persons aged 18 years and over.\n * Values assigned to "n.p." in the original data have been removed from the data.\n * Data for PHN701 (Northern Territory) should be interpreted with caution as the National Health Survey excluded discrete Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities and very remote areas, which comprise around 28% of the estimated resident population of the Northern Territory living in private dwellings.\n
