A new report presents a range of statistics for the Indigenous population of Australia using results of the 2006 Census. Population Characteristics, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians, 2006 (cat. no. 4713.0) covers:
  • Indigenous population structure and distribution; mobility; household composition; language and religious affiliation; education; work; income; and housing and transport.

  • It also includes the new topics of need for assistance, unpaid work and dwelling Internet connection.

  • Estimates of the resident Indigenous population of Australia, and a discussion of issues affecting Indigenous population data are also included.

Also available: the Indigenous Community Profile contains 34 tables showing Census data on Indigenous people and households, and includes some comparisons with non-Indigenous people. Profile tables are available for a range of geographies.
