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.

ECONOMIC PARTICIPATION 9.33 Figure 9.4.2 Main source of personal cash income for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians aged 1864 years in remote/very remote areas, 2002 to 2014-15a,b,c,d a Error bars represent 95 per cent confidence intervals around each estimate. b Remote areas include remote and very remote. c In 2012-13, CDEP was only able to be separately identified in remote and very remote areas. d In 2014-15, the number of CDEP participants receiving wages was zero. Sources: ABS (unpublished) National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Social Survey (NATSISS) 2002; ABS (unpublished) National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Survey 2004-05; ABS (unpublished) NATSISS 2008; ABS (unpublished) Australian Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Survey 2012-13 (2012-13 NATSIHS component); ABS (unpublished) NATSISS 2014-15; table 9A.4.3. The majority of the change in main income source from 2002 to 2014-15 reflects an increased proportion of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians in remote and very remote areas with employee income (from 20.5 per cent to 36.0 per cent), and a similar increase in the proportion receiving government pensions and allowances (from 42.2 per cent to 55.5 per cent). Data reported from 2012-13 onwards will be affected by the phasing out of CDEP (figure 9.4.2). Data on main sources of personal cash income for people aged 1864 years are also reported by State and Territory (tables 9A.4.12) and by remoteness (table 9A.4.3). Data on people aged 1864 years receiving government cash pensions and allowances are also reported by sex and State and Territory (table 9A.4.4), sex by remoteness (table 9A.4.5) and by sex by age group (table 9A.4.6). Data on sources of cash income for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander households for 2004-05 and 2012-13 are in tables 9A.4.79. 0 10 20 30 40 50 60 70 2002 2004-05 2008 2012-13 2014-15 P e r c e n t CDEP Employee income Govt pensions/allowances Other cash income Not stated
