Our output

PHIDU provides detailed data on the health of Australians and the social determinants of health outcomes at national, jurisdictional, regional and small area levels. The data are presented in a variety of user-friendly formats: interactive maps; interactive graphics; and spreadsheets.


This web-based source of data on health and its determinants is unique in Australia, and has been acknowledged internationally by agencies such as the World Health Organization.

We invite you to explore these data and use them freely in your research, study, planning, teaching, policy-making, communications and conversation.
