Between 2006 and 2011, Census counts of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples rose by 21 per cent. This publication examines the issues underlying the change in Census counts for people identifying as Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander origin from the 2006 Census to 2011 Census and attempts to quantify elements of this increase. It provides an analysis of key demographic factors and selected characteristics (including educational attainment) that highlight the scope and implications of the increased population count to assist policy makers, researchers and other data users to understand and assess the impact of this change.

ABS REVIEW OF THE INDIGENOUS STANDARD

In February 2013, the ABS commenced a project to enhance the Indigenous Standard. This is part of the normal rolling examination of all ABS standards and will review all aspects of the standard including the Standard Indigenous Question and coding procedures. The project may result in proposals, for example, to supplement the existing Indigenous Question with other questions and/or to provide more explanatory information for users of the Standard. The ABS will take into full consideration any impact on time series, as well as costs associated with any potential change to the Standard. The project will make recommendations by the end of 2013.
