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

This project received investment from the Australian Research Data Commons (ARDC). The ARDC is funded by the  National Collaborative Research Infrastructure Strategy (NCRIS)


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.

Cancer Determinants

Working with the Australian Cancer Atlas ( AusUrb-HI will develop indicators quantifying the association between demographic, socioeconomic, health services and environmental determinates 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 ( AusUrb-HI will generate indicators that give new insight into the liveability of Australian urban and regional areas from a health perspective
