Overcoming Indigenous disadvantage: key indicators 2014
Canberra: Productivity Commission

This report measures the wellbeing of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians. It is the sixth report in a series commissioned by all Australian governments, designed to measure progress in overcoming the disadvantage faced by many Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians. Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians have been actively involved in the development and production of the report. The report measures the progress of the six targets set by the Council of Australian Governments Closing the gap strategy, together with other identified significant indicators. The report has three main sections:

  • an overview of the key messages
  • the main report which provides the evidence base for the framework for the report and detailed information on outcomes
  • tables expanding on the data presented in the report.

The information in this report can help inform the design of policies.
