Indigenous languages

Data on specific Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander languages are only available for the 1996 and 2001 Censuses.

The Census asks a question on language spoken at home. The question may not collect complete language use data, but does give an indication of the number of speakers of Indigenous languages in Australia.

See also Language Spoken at Home (LANP).
