Worked in own business
In 2006, 6,800 or 6% of employed Indigenous people indicated they worked in their own business. This compares with 17% of employed non-Indigenous people. The proportion of employed Indigenous people who worked in their own business was highest in Major Cities (7%) and lowest in Very Remote areas (2%). In contrast, the proportion of employed non-Indigenous people who worked in their own business was similar across remoteness areas.
Employed Indigenous people were more likely than employed non-Indigenous people to have worked part-time hours in the week prior to the 2006 Census (39% and 30% respectively). Both Indigenous and non-Indigenous women were more likely to have worked part time hours (49% and 45% respectively), than Indigenous and non-Indigenous men (31% and 17%).
