Section 1.4 includes a brief historical narrative to help put the information in the report into context.

COAG TARGETS AND HEADLINE INDICATORS 4.59 Future directions in data Annual data are collected for the general population on barriers to labour force participation, including identification of discouraged job seekers. However, these data are not available by Indigenous status. Information on Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander discouraged workers is important to understand the potential scope of the labour force and employment.
