September 2012 Overview & report
The 2012 Report is the second in a series that provides estimates of expenditure on services to Indigenous Australians. It contributes to the information available to policy makers to address the gap between outcomes for Indigenous and other Australians. It provides information on the level and patterns of expenditure on targeted and mainstream services for Indigenous Australians across 86 expenditure categories, mapped to the COAG National Indigenous Reform Agreement building blocks. When combined with other information, the estimates in the Report can contribute to a better understanding of the adequacy, effectiveness and efficiency of government expenditure on services to Indigenous Australians.
