To describe the current state of the Indigenous labour market focusing on the last two censuses but also describing trends going back to the 1971 Census. This monograph will place emphasis on structuring the economic analysis into supply and demand side approaches to Indigenous involvement in the labour market. Thus it will examine demographic trends and changes in labour force participation rates as well as the industry and occupation of Indigenous people who are employed. In doing so the project will also examine the impact of changing Indigenous identification between censuses on such analysis.
