NT's Indigenous people more likely to be victims of crime than non-Indigenous people
Indigenous people were more likely than non-Indigenous people to be victims of assault and homicide but less likely to be victims of robbery in the NT, according to the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) publication Regional Statistics, Northern Territory which was released today.
Indigenous people comprised just under one-third (30%) of the NT's population but were the victims of over half (59%) of all assaults, half (50%) of all sexual assaults and nearly two-thirds (65%) of all homicide and related offences in 2008.
In contrast, 7% of NT's robbery victims were Indigenous.
