Australian Urban Health Indicators (AusUrb-HI) is a collaboration between NCRIS facilities, AURIN and PHRN, and researchers, that will develop a suite of new indicator data assets that improve the understanding of the health of Australian urban and regional populations.
Integrating health outcomes & health determinants
PHRN Health Outcomes Data
Individual unit record level data on population health, from the Population Health Research Network (PHRN).
AURIN Health Determinants Data
Demographic, socioeconomic, health service and environmental data, from AURIN.
De-indentified and integrated in the Secure Unified Research Environment (SURE) at the Sax Institute.
Linkage of health outcomes and their determinants for improved practice and policy.
Integrated Data for Better Health Outcomes for All Australians
Working with Cancer Council Queensland and the Australian Cancer Atlas, AusUrb-HI will develop indicators quantifying the association between demographic, socioeconomic, health services and environmental determinants to the incidence and survival rates for major types of cancer for urban and regional areas across Australia
Heat Health Vulnerability
AusUrb-HI will develop a population heat health vulnerability indicator that combines data on population demographics, socioeconomic characteristics, health and environmental conditions in order to understand the locations of greatest population vulnerability to current (and potentially future) extreme heat events
Urban Liveability & Health
In collaboration with the RMIT Centre for Urban Research (https://cur.org.au/) AusUrb-HI will generate indicators that give new insight into the liveability of Australian urban and regional areas from a health perspective
AURIN, the ARDC and the PHRN are funded by the National Collaborative Research Infrastructure Strategy (NCRIS)
