FURTHER INFORMATION

This report presents information on Indigenous population characteristics from Census data only. There are a number of other sources of information about the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander population, which draw data from other sources, such as population surveys and administrative data.


For more detailed analysis of the health and wellbeing of Indigenous Australians, together with a comprehensive discussion of available data sources, readers are referred to the biennial ABS and AIHW publication The Health and Welfare of Australia's Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples (cat. no. 4704.0).


The Steering Committee for the Review of Government Service Provision produces the biennial report Overcoming Indigenous Disadvantage: Key Indicators. Much like a report card, this report shows progress against a reporting framework built around indicators and strategic areas for action to close the disadvantage gap between Indigenous people and other Australians. Readers are recommended to consult that report for an understanding of progress towards overcoming Indigenous disadvantage.
