Social Science Perspectives on the 2008 National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Social Survey (NATSISS) Conference, Canberra, 11-12 April 2011

'Social Science Perspectives on the 2008 National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Social Survey' was held at The Australian National University in Canberra over two days on 11 and 12 April 2011.

Presented by the Centre for Aboriginal Economic Policy Research (CAEPR) and the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS), the conference brought together some leading social scientists writing on Indigenous issues in Australia and internationally. The main aim of the conference was to initiate a conversation between stakeholders and academics about data and the research required to enhance the social science evidence base around Indigenous wellbeing and socioeconomic disadvantage, with particular reference to the 2008 National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Survey (NATSIS).

Over the two days of the conference, papers were presented by leading researchers covering a wide range of topics including: child development, crime and justice, culture, the customary economy, demography, education, employment, fertility, health, housing, income and financial stress, mobility, poverty, social exclusion, substance abuse and, last but not least, wellbeing.
