Abbreviated forms of 'Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander' and ‘Torres Strait Islander’ should not be used in column headings, spanner headings, stub labels and other text fields in tables (e.g. table titles and footnotes). While the detailed descriptor is long, it will generally only appear once in a table and the 'wrap text' option can be used if necessary. Here are some examples of acceptable use of terminology in tables.
