The Census of Population and Housing forms the centrepiece of ABS statistics on characteristics of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. The Census provides the basis for Indigenous population estimates and is the key source of socioeconomic information about Indigenous Australians for small geographic areas.

This publication is a comprehensive summary of Census based statistics for the Indigenous population, and includes information on population, mobility, household and family composition, language and religion, education, work, income and housing. Information is also separately presented about Torres Strait Islander people.

This report focuses primarily on population characteristics at the national level disaggregated by states and territories and remoteness areas. While the publication includes information for states and territories and remoteness areas, more extensive information is available in state and territory spreadsheet format on the ABS website (cat. no. 4713.1.55.001 - 4713.8.55.001).
