We surveyed 755 Aboriginal Australians in four communities across Victoria in 2011.
• Aboriginal people were asked about their background, experiences of racism and where they occurred, response strategies and the impact of racism on anxiety, mental distress (measured using the K5 scale for psychological distress) and behaviour and the impact of racism on their family and community.
• The surveys were conducted in consultation with local communities and the data were collected by local Aboriginal interviewers in each community.
