The Australian Bureau of Statistics has released initial information from the 2008 National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Social Survey (NATSISS).
The survey provides a snapshot of the wellbeing of the Indigenous population by collecting information on a range of demographic, social, environmental and economic indicators. The survey was conducted from August 2008 to April 2009, with responses from around 13,300 Indigenous Australians.
The current release provides information on: language and culture; social networks and support; health; education; work; housing; and financial stress. More detailed results for these and other topics from the survey, including additional data cubes, will be released on the Australian Bureau of Statistics website in 2010.
