The aim of the one day Indigenous Demographic Trends course is to provide an understanding of the main demographic trends in the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander (Indigenous) population. The course covers how many and where Indigenous people are, changing propensity to identify as Indigenous, fertility, mortality, migration and how many Indigenous people there may be in the future. Along the way key issues associated with collecting, estimating, projecting and analysing the relevant statistics are covered. Indigenous Demographic Trends costs $380 per participant and includes copies of three Indigenous publications, morning and afternoon tea and a light lunch.

The next courses are scheduled for 5 October in Adelaide, 8 October in Perth, 18 October in Sydney and 14 November in Brisbane.
