2017 Indigenous expenditure report
Canberra: Productivity Commission

The report provides estimates of expenditure on services provided to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians by the Australian, state and territory governments. Estimates are provided for each level of government, Australia as a whole and by state and territory, for 2008-09, 2010-11, 2012-13 and 2015-16. When combined with other information (Overcoming Indigenous disadvantage: key indicators 2016 report), the estimates contribute to a better understanding of the adequacy, effectiveness and efficiency of government expenditure on services to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians. It also provides policy makers with an additional tool for targeting policies to close the gap in Indigenous disadvantage.
