ABOUT ABORIGINAL AND TORRES STRAIT ISLANDER WELLBEING: A FOCUS ON CHILDREN AND YOUTH
This information is part of a comprehensive series released as Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Wellbeing: A focus on children and youth.
In 2008, the National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Social Survey (NATSISS) collected information about Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples aged 15 years and over; for the first time it also collected information about children aged 0–14 years.
Children aged 0–14 years, and youth aged 15–24 years, make up over half of the total Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander population. Therefore, the issues that affect them have a significant effect on the wellbeing of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities as a whole.
This publication uses the new data collected in the 2008 NATSISS that primarily focuses on Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children and youth. The articles in the publication include:
The majority of the publication has been developed within the context of the Framework for Measuring Wellbeing: Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples 2010 (cat. no 4703.0) (see below). The Framework attempts to provide a holistic approach to statistics about the wellbeing of all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians, including children and youth.
The following diagram presents the 'domains' of the framework which are applied to the articles in this publication.
The 2008 NATSISS was dependent on the high level of cooperation received from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and their communities. Without their continued support, the wide range of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander statistics published by the ABS would not be available.
The artwork used throughout this release was produced as part of the Making Two Worlds Work project, a partnership project between the Mungabareena Aboriginal Corporation and Women's Health Goulburn North East.
