Description

The OID report measures the wellbeing of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians, and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians have been actively involved in the development and production of the report. 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.

Notes

"These reports generally uses the term ‘Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians’ to describe Australia’s first peoples and ‘non-Indigenous Australians’ to refer to Australians of other backgrounds, except where quoting other sources." Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people should be aware that this publication may contain images of deceased people.

Rate ratio Rates are calculated from revised Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander population estimates and the number of young people on an average day rounded to whole numbers and may therefore vary from the rates published in Youth Justice in Australia 2014-15. In June 2013, the ABS 'recast' the historical ERP data for the September 1991 to June 2011 period, as a response to a methodological improvement in the Census Post Enumeration Survey. In April 2014, the ABS 'recast' the historical estimates for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander populations. As a result, the rates per 100,000 persons in this table have been recast, and all now use final ERP data based on the 2011 Census of Population and Housing. Age is calculated at the start of the financial year if the first period of community-based supervision began before the start of the financial year, otherwise age is calculated at the start of the first period of community-based supervision. Numbers may not sum due to rounding. WA and the NT did not provide Juvenile Justice National Minimum Data Set data for 200809 to 2014-15 (WA) and 2011-12 to 2014-15 (NT), non-standard data for WA and NT are reported and included in Aust. totals. National totals may vary from those published in Youth Justice in Australia 201415 (AIHW 2016) for 200910 and 201011 due a different source of data for the NT.
