INDUSTRY AND OCCUPATION
In comparison with other industries, a relatively high proportion of employed Indigenous people were working in Manufacturing and Retail Trade in Major Cities (10% and 9% respectively) and Inner Regional areas (10% each), reflecting the geographical location of these particular industries. The largest industries of employment in Remote and Very Remote areas were Public Administration and Safety (20% and 44% respectively), Health Care and Social Assistance (19% and 20% respectively) and Education and Training (10% and 7% respectively). Together these three industries accounted for 49% of the employment in Remote areas and 72% of employment in Very Remote areas. In comparison, these industries accounted for 33% of Indigenous employment in Major Cities.
The proportion of employed Indigenous people working as Labourers rose with increasing geographic remoteness, from about one in seven (16%) in Major Cities to about two in five (44%) in Very Remote areas. In the Major Cities, Indigenous people were most likely to be employed as Labourers (16%) and Clerical and Administrative Workers (16%). In contrast, Indigenous people employed in Very Remote areas were most likely to be Labourers (44%) and Community and Personal Service Workers (17%).
