by Megalogenis, George.

Publisher: Melbourne, Vic.

How realistic are the prospects for 'closing the gaps' in socioeconomic outcomes for Indigenous Australians? /

by Altman, J.C | Australian National University. Centre for Aboriginal conomic Policy Research | Biddle, N | Hunter, B.H.

Publisher: Canberra, A.C.T. Centre for Aboriginal Economic Policy Research. Australian National University 2008Description: HTML.Notes: URL: 'http://www.anu.edu.au/caepr/discussion.php' Checked: 2/03/2009 9:55:59 AM Status: Live Details: HTTP status 200 - Usual success responseSummary: " Practical reconciliation and more recently closing the gaps have been put forward as frameworks on which to base and then evaluate policies to address Indigenous disadvantage. This paper uses census-based analysis at the national level to examine trends in Indigenous wellbeing since 1971. There has been steady improvement in most socioeconomic outcomes as measured by standard social indicators in the last 35 years. This finding is at dramatic odds with the currently dominant discourse of failure in Indigenous affairs. However, evidence of convergence between Indigenous and non-Indigenous outcomes is not consistent. There have now been eight censuses since 1971, and this paper seeks to use information of best-case scenario trends to make some crude estimates of when the gaps might be closed in order to assess the realism of this emerging overarching goal of policy." -- Publisher website.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

Practical reconciliation and recent trends in Indigenous education . /

by Hunter, Boyd | Schwab, Jerry.

Publisher: Canberra, A.C.T. Centre for Aboriginal Economic Policy Research. Australian National University 2003Notes: URL: 'http://online.anu.edu.au/caepr/Publications/DP/2003_DP249.pdf' Checked: 2/03/2009 9:44:10 AM Status: Live Details: HTTP status 200 - Usual success responseSummary: In this paper the authors analyse recent trends in the engagement of Indigenous people with the Australian education system between 1986 and 2001. The analysis shows that while there have been some absolute improvements in Indigenous educational outcomes over this period, these gains are less evident when measured relative to non-Indigenous outcomes. The lack of improvement relative to the non-Indigenous population is seen not only in the proportion of the population with post-secondary qualifications, but also in the proportion of Indigenous teenagers staying at school. The Indigenous population remains severely disadvantaged.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).
