Overcoming Indigenous Disadvantage: Key Indicators 2009

Overcoming Indigenous Disadvantage: Key Indicators 2009 was released on 2 July 2009.

In April 2002, the Council of Australian Governments commissioned the Steering Committee to produce a regular report against key indicators of Indigenous disadvantage. This report has an important long-term objective. It is to inform Australian governments about whether policy programs and interventions are achieving positive outcomes for Indigenous people. This will help guide where further work is needed.
