Statistics In 2012–13, almost one in five (17.9%) Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people aged 18 years and over had indicators of chronic kidney disease, with the majority being in Stage 1 (11.8%) and very few in Stages 4–5 (1.1%). Overall, the rates of chronic kidney disease were similar for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander men (18.9%) and women (16.9%). After taking age differences into account, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people were more than twice as likely as non-Indigenous people to have indicators of chronic kidney disease (rate ratio of 2.1).
