VICTIMS OF SEXUAL ASSAULT, Relationship of offender to victim by Indigenous status-Northern Territory
In 2010, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders in the Northern Territory were more than twice as likely as non-Indigenous persons to be victims of sexual assault. The victimisation rate for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander victims of sexual assault was 207.7 victims per 100,000, compared to 92.9 victims per 100,000 for non-Indigenous persons. By contrast, non-Indigenous Northern Territorians were victims of robbery at more than three times the rate of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders (46.8 victims per 100,000 non-Indigenous persons compared to 14.4 victims per 100,000 Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders).
There were 91 person victims of robbery in the Northern Territory of whom 74% were male. Almost 80% of robbery victims reported that the offender was a stranger.
