Indigenous men and women had similar unemployment rates (16% and 15% respectively), as did non-Indigenous men and women (both 5%). Compared with the overall Indigenous unemployment rate, the younger age groups had higher unemployment rates (28% unemployment rate for 15-17 years and 21% for 18-24 years). A similar pattern was observed in the non-Indigenous population, where the unemployment rate for the 15-17 and 18-24 year age groups was 13% and 9% respectively. The unemployment rate for both Indigenous and non-Indigenous people was progressively lower in other age groups up to 54 years.
