The majority (85%) of Australia's 1,187 discrete Indigenous communities were in very remote localities, according to the ABS 2006 Community Housing and Infrastructure Needs Survey (CHINS) released today.
Almost three-quarters (73%) of discrete Indigenous communities reported a population of less than 50 people.
Over half (57%) of permanent dwellings managed by 496 Indigenous Housing Organisations were in very remote areas, 32% were in non-remote areas and 11% in remote areas. Indigenous Housing Organisations managed 21,758 permanent dwellings.
Other 2006 CHINS findings:
The CHINS was conducted by the Australian Bureau of Statistics on behalf of the Department of Families, Community Services and Indigenous Affairs.
