A2.2 OVERCOMING INDIGENOUS DISADVANTAGE 2016 According to estimates of the Australian population in 2011: the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander population had a very different age structure to the non-Indigenous population. The Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander population tended to be younger, with 35.9 per cent aged 014 years, compared to 18.4 per cent of the non-Indigenous population (figure A2.1) the proportion of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander population aged 75 years and over was 1.0 per cent, compared with 6.5 per cent of the non-Indigenous population (figure A2.1) the different age structures of the populations was also reflected in their median (midpoint) ages. The median age of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander population was 21.8 years, compared with a median age of 37.6 years for the non-Indigenous population (table A.1). Figure A2.2 Proportion of the population in each remoteness area, 2011 Source: ABS 2013, Estimates of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians, June 2011, Cat. no. 3238.0.55.001; table A.2. The two populations also differed in their geographic distribution. In 2011, although the majority of both populations lived in major cities and regional areas, a much higher proportion of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander population lived in remote and very remote areas (21.3 per cent, compared with 1.7 per cent of the non-Indigenous population (figure A2.2). 0 20 40 60 80 Major Cities Inner Regional Outer Regional Remote Very Remote P e r c e n t Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Non-Indigenous
