Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples

The Australian Bureau of Statistics acknowledges Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples as the Traditional Owners and Custodians of Country throughout Australia where we work, learn and live.  We recognise their continuing connection to land, waters and community, and pay our respects to their cultures and Elders, past, present and emerging.

We are committed to working with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples to see, hear and acknowledge their cultures and experiences in Australia’s national story through our statistical collections, return of information to community and a diverse workforce.
