Indigenous mobility between Remoteness Areas
Between 2001 and 2006, 12% of Indigenous people aged 5 years and over in 2006 moved between Remoteness Areas. Major Cities, Inner Regional areas and Outer Regional areas all attracted similar numbers of Indigenous people (between 10,500 and 11,300) into them; and were also the greatest sources of migrants to other areas (approximately 10,000).
There were different rates and patterns of mobility observed for different age groups. Indigenous people aged 5-19 years accounted for 43% of net movement between Remoteness Areas, and were most likely to leave Remote and Very Remote areas, accounting for 45% and 57% of the movement out of these areas. Indigenous people aged 40 years and over were least likely to change address, with 70% of this age group living at the same address as 2001.
