In April 2002, the Council of Australian Governments commissioned the Steering Committee to produce a regular report against key indicators of Indigenous disadvantage.
The Overcoming Indigenous Disadvantage report measures the wellbeing of Australia’s Indigenous peoples. The report provides information about outcomes across a range of strategic areas such as early child development, education and training, healthy lives, economic participation, home environment, and safe and supportive communities. The report examines whether policies and programs are achieving positive outcomes for Indigenous Australians.
The latest edition of the report, Overcoming Indigenous Disadvantage: Key Indicators 2014, was released on 19 November 2014. Previous editions were published in 2003, 2005, 2007, 2009 and 2011.
Of particular interest is Chapter 10
HH is preparing comments on the content of the report ....stay tuned.
