Closing the gap on Indigenous disadvantage : the challenge for Australia /

Publisher: Canberra, A.C.T. Australian Government 2009Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Febuary 2009 Forward by Kevin Rudd approved NadineSummary: In the more than four decades since the 1967 Referendum, Australian governments have developed and funded policies and programs to improve the socio-economic status of Indigenous people, and overcome a long history of poverty and marginalisation. Progress has been made. Yet in 2009, despite the formal recognition of equality so many years ago, Indigenous people remain among the most disadvantaged Australians. Many simply do not have the opportunities afforded their fellow Australians, and many are not able to participate fully in our national life. ; Too many Indigenous Australians experience unacceptable levels of disadvantage in living standards, life-expectancy, education, health and employment. Rates of chronic disease, mental illness and hospitalisation are significantly higher for the Indigenous population than the non-Indigenous population' Literacy and numeracy results for Indigenous students are consistently below the national average, especially in remote areas. ; The gulf that exists between Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians in these critical areas remains significant and, in some areas, is widening as the rate of improvement has been greater for other Australians than for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples over recent years.Availability: (1)

Indigenous self-employment : miracle cure or risky business? /

by Hunter, Boyd | Australian National University. Centre for Aboriginal conomic Policy Research.

Publisher: Canberra Australian National University, Centre for Aboriginal Economic Policy Research 1999Description: PDF.Other title: Australian National University. Centre for Aboriginal Policy.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: March 1999 Includes bibliographySummary: Running a business, or otherwise being self-employed, is one avenue for economic advancement for Indigenous people. However, employing oneself or others is a complex process with many potential pitfalls. In an increasingly competitive marketplace, where globalisation and instantaneous information processing have increased the mobility of consumers and producers alike, Indigenous businesses have to be increasingly sophisticated to compete. Not only do they need to manage financial risk, but also fluctuating markets require a truly worldly outlook with adequate access to collateral and social networks. In this context it is not surprising that the Indigenous population continues to have a very low rate of business formation. This paper provides a profile of the Indigenous self-employed in Australia using data from the National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Survey and recent censuses. It uses this profile to discuss issues raised in the international literature on race, ethnicity and self-employment.Availability: (1)
