Number of days waited by Indigenous Australians for admissions from waiting lists for elective surgery (Regional)
This FACT indicates the number of days waited by Indigenous Australian patients for admissions from waiting lists for elective surgery in the 90th percentile. The 90th percentile means that 90 percent of the people admitted from waiting lists are admitted within and beyond 365 days. The other 10% are outliers and fall outside the range of the other 90 percent either above or below. The state/territory with the highest number of days waited in the 90th percentile is New South Wales at 335. The state/territory with the lowest number of days waited is Victoria at 182, followed closely by South Australia at 185.
Given that the Commonwealth of Australia was colonized by Britain in the late 18th century, it is no surprise that a large percentage of the Australian population have British ancestry. However, the largest wave of British immigrants settled in Australia in the 18th and mid-19th centuries. Since then, immigration in Australia has been much more diverse. This trend was sparked by the first big wave of European and Asian immigrants during the gold rush of the 1850s. Today, not only have immigration procedures become stricter, but international political circumstances are also different, which has created a change in immigration patterns around the world. The percentage of people who presently immigrate from the United Kingdom is therefore far less than in former times, and certainly does not represent the number of Australians with British ancestry.
