Central Victoria Profile

Introduction

Welcome to the Murray PHN Central Victorian regional profile. Please take a few minutes to read the information within this introductory section.  

It will provide you with a sound understanding of

  • how geographic areas within the Central Victoria are classified 
  • where additional data sources can be accessed

Geographic areas

Information for each region is often available by the following geographic areas

  • Local Government Areas (LGAs) 
  • Australian Bureau of Statistics Statistical Areas (SAs) 

This profile lists data and information at the LGA and Statistical Area 2 ( SA2) level where possible.  SA2s are smaller than LGAs and  generally have a population range of 3,000 to 25,000 persons.  (http://www.abs.gov.au/ausstats/abs@.nsf/Latestproducts/88F6A0EDEB8879C0CA257801000C64D9

CV Median age at death (2009-12)

Social Health Atlas of Australia - Victoria and NSW Local Government Areas, June 2015 

Both Macedon Ranges and Loddon LGA's recorded a median death age that was below the Victorian figure. In the Murray PHN catchment, the median age at death was notably lower (five years) than the Victorian Figure in both Mitchell and Murrindindi LGA's. Rates were also lower in Loddon (two and a half years lower), Swan Hill RC and Wodonga (both two years lower).  The median age at death for males living in Murray PHN catchment LGAs is notably lower (five years) than for females.

CV Gambling

State-level profile of ‘problem gambler’

The Victorian Gambling Study, A Longitudinal Study of gambling and public health - Wave Two Findings (Dept of Justice, 2011) found that a  number of variables were found to be associated with the increased risk of 'transitioning' from a non-gambler/non-problem gambler to a low or moderate risk or problem gambler.  These variables were:

  • poor general health
  • poor psychological health
  • past year smoking
  • group households (with non-relatives)
  • speaking a language other than English at home
  • year 10 or lower education levels
  • betting weekly or greater on horse, harness racing or greyhounds, and
  • Troubles with work, boss or superiors and an increase in the number of arguments with someone close.

The study also found that males are significantly more likely to be problem gamblers or moderate risk gamblers than females. For males, those aged 25-34 years have the highest prevalence of problem gambling, followed by those aged 50-64 years.

The 25-34 years age group also had the highest prevalence of problem gambling for females, along with the 35-49 year age group then closely followed by females aged 60-64 years.

For both males and females, the lowest problem gambling prevalence was in the 65 years or older age group
