Section 1.1 describes the origins of the report, and section 1.2 describes its key objectives. Section 1.3 provides contextual information on the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander population. Section 1.4 includes a brief historical narrative to help put the information in the report into context. Section 1.5 summarises some recent developments in government policy that have influenced the report and section 1.6 provides further information on the Steering Committee and the OID Working Group that advises it.

Tasmania: For 2010-11, the proportion of substantiations for children of unknown Indigenous status impacts the reliability of these data. As such, any comparisons of the Indigenous status breakdown to previous years should be made with caution. Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander For 2009-10 onwards, rates of children in substantiations are calculated as the number of children aged 017 years (including children whose ages were not stated) divided by the estimated population of children aged 017 years at 31 December, multiplied by 1000. For Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children, the June projections for two years were averaged to obtain a population figure for December of the relevant year. Prior to 2009-10, rates of children in substantiations were calculated as the number of children aged 016 years (see table 4A.11.2). A separate unknown Indigenous status category is reported. Rates are not able to be calculated for children of unknown Indigenous status as corresponding population data are not available.
