WHERE INDIGENOUS PEOPLE LIVE
As a result of this difference in population distribution, the Indigenous proportion of the total population increased with geographic remoteness, from 1% of the total population living in Major Cities to 48% living in Very Remote areas.
State and Territory
Over half of the preliminary estimated resident Indigenous population lived in either New South Wales (29%) or Queensland (28%); 15% resided in Western Australia and 13% in the Northern Territory. The distribution of the Aboriginal population across the states and territories closely reflected that of the total Indigenous population, while 64% of the Torres Strait Islander population lived in Queensland (which includes the Torres Strait Area).
