Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    The definition of Indigenous is dependent on:

    • A.

      A government decision

    • B.

      Self-identification and acceptance

    • C.

      Documentation of proof

    • D.

      Genetic testing

    • E.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    B. Self-identification and acceptance
    Explanation
    The correct answer is self-identification and acceptance. Indigenous identity is not determined by a government decision, documentation of proof, or genetic testing. It is a personal and cultural identification that individuals and communities claim for themselves based on their historical and ongoing connections to a particular land, culture, and heritage. Self-identification and acceptance are essential in recognizing and respecting Indigenous peoples' rights, autonomy, and self-determination.

    Life expectancy for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander males is:

    • A.

      The same as for Australian males generally

    • B.

      30 years less than for Australian males generally

    • C.

      20 years less than for Australian males generally

    • D.

      10 years less than for Australian males generally

    • E.

      5 years more than for Australian males generally

    Correct Answer
    C. 20 years less than for Australian males generally
    Explanation
    Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander males have a life expectancy that is 20 years less than Australian males generally. This means that, on average, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander males have a shorter lifespan compared to males in the general Australian population. This difference in life expectancy may be influenced by various factors such as socioeconomic disadvantages, higher rates of chronic diseases, and barriers to accessing healthcare services.

  • 3. 

    Infant mortality among Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander populations is:

    • A.

      The same as for all Australians

    • B.

      The worst in the world

    • C.

      The worst among Indigenous peoples living in industrialised countries

    • D.

      The worst among Indigenous peoples living in any country

    • E.

      Comparable to other Indigenous peoples

    Correct Answer
    C. The worst among Indigenous peoples living in industrialised countries
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "The worst among Indigenous peoples living in industrialised countries." This means that infant mortality rates among Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander populations are higher compared to other Indigenous populations living in developed countries. It suggests that despite living in a country with advanced healthcare systems and resources, the health outcomes for Indigenous peoples in Australia are significantly worse, particularly in terms of infant mortality.

    Due to physical stature Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander adults are:

    • A.

      More likely to have a higher percentage of body fat at the same BMI than a Caucasian adult

    • B.

      More likely to have a lower percentage of body fat at the same BMI than a Caucasian adult

    • C.

      Likely to have the same percentage of body fat at the same BMI as a Caucasian adult

    • D.

      Unlikely to develop overweight or obesity

    • E.

      Physical stature has no bearing on the percentage of body fat

    Correct Answer
    A. More likely to have a higher percentage of body fat at the same BMI than a Caucasian adult
    Explanation
    The answer states that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander adults are more likely to have a higher percentage of body fat at the same BMI than a Caucasian adult. This suggests that there may be differences in body composition between these two populations, with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander adults tending to have a higher percentage of body fat compared to Caucasian adults with the same BMI. This could be due to various factors such as genetic differences, lifestyle factors, or cultural factors.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    Indigenous adults aged 45-54 years are _____ times more likely to be living with diabetes than non-Indigenous adults?

    • A.

      1.5

    • B.

      3

    • C.

      5

    • D.

      10

    • E.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    C. 5
    Explanation
    Indigenous adults aged 45-54 years are 5 times more likely to be living with diabetes than non-Indigenous adults. This means that the prevalence of diabetes is significantly higher among Indigenous adults in this age group compared to their non-Indigenous counterparts. The higher risk of diabetes in Indigenous adults could be attributed to various factors such as genetic predisposition, lifestyle choices, socioeconomic factors, and limited access to healthcare services.

    Colonisation has resulted in poor nutrition due to:

    • A.

      Loss of traditional food sources

    • B.

      Chronic diseases

    • C.

      Poor housing

    • D.

      Alcohol and substance abuse

    • E.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    E. All of the above
    Explanation
    The process of colonization has led to poor nutrition due to multiple factors. Firstly, it has resulted in the loss of traditional food sources for indigenous communities, as their lands and resources have been taken over. This has disrupted their traditional diets, which were often more balanced and nutritious. Secondly, colonization has brought along chronic diseases, such as obesity and diabetes, which are linked to poor nutrition. Additionally, poor housing conditions in colonized areas contribute to inadequate access to nutritious food. Lastly, colonization has also introduced alcohol and substance abuse issues, which further impact nutrition. Therefore, all of the listed factors contribute to the poor nutrition resulting from colonization.

    Most Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders live in:

    • A.

      Urban areas

    • B.

      Regional areas

    • C.

      Remote areas

    • D.

      Areas with an ARIA score of 15

    • E.

      Areas with an ARIA score of 0

    Correct Answer
    B. Regional areas
    Explanation
    The correct answer is regional areas. This means that the majority of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders live in areas that are outside of major cities but not in very remote or isolated areas. This suggests that there is a significant population of Indigenous Australians who choose to live in smaller towns and communities, possibly due to cultural or historical reasons, as well as access to services and opportunities.

    Healthy eating in remote areas is difficult because:

    • A.

      Most residents lack willpower to make the necessary changes

    • B.

      Most residents do not know how to cook

    • C.

      Most residents spend their incomes on other goods and services

    • E.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    D. Healthy food is of poor quality and expensive
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Healthy food is of poor quality and expensive". This option suggests that the main reason why healthy eating is difficult in remote areas is due to the lack of availability and affordability of nutritious food. It implies that even if residents have the willpower to make the necessary changes and know how to cook, they are still unable to access healthy food because it is of poor quality and expensive.

This includes addressing issues such as chronic disease, infant mortality, mental health, and access to healthcare services.
