There has recently been a movement of Aboriginals to outlying settlements. This article, which is a revised version of a paper given at the North Australia Statistics Workshop in Darwin, May 17-19, examines the patterns of mortality in remote Aboriginal communities and compares these with rates for other locations in Australia's northern regions. The results indicate mortality rates several times higher in remote Aboriginal settlements than elsewhere in the north in Australia as a whole. Copyright. Monash University and the author/s
