Summary
Uses West Australian mortality and hospitalisation data for 1983-1991 to estimate the number of Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal deaths and hospital admissions due to alcohol and tobacco use; found that tobacco smoking and alcohol consumption were responsible for much higher rates of death and hospitalisation for Aboriginal people than for non-Aboriginal people; discusses methodological problems relating to estimation techniques and implications for the health sector
