INDIGENOUS STATUS

While the participation rate in sport and physical recreation activities for the Indigenous population was 66% compared with 74% for non-Indigenous Australians, there was not enough evidence to support whether this difference was statistically significant. Similarly, there was not enough evidence to identify whether the participation rate for Indigenous females (63%) was significantly lower than the participation rate for Indigenous males (70%).
