The Centre for Aboriginal Economic Policy Research (CAEPR) two-day multidisciplinary conference, Indigenous Socioeconomic Outcomes: Assessing Recent Evidence will be held in Canberra on 11-12 August 2005. The aim of the conference is to present the latest evidence on Indigenous economic status, social status, and family and community life in Australia and to discuss the implications of such data for government policy. The conference will provide information which will be of great value to policy makers and researchers, and will assist them in making the best use of the results of the latest Australian Bureau of Statistics Census and social surveys, in particular the National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Social Survey (NATSISS).
