This paper aims to provide an detailed assessment of the accuracy of 1991 Census counts of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. This was achieved by examining intercensal changes, undercount, non-response and accuracy of stated responses to the Census question on Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander origin. In addition, geographic and demographic analyses, as well as a comparison of Census data with other sources, were undertaken.
