2012 Indigenous expenditure report

by Steering Committee for the Review of Government Service Provision

Year 2012
City Canberra
Institution Productivity Commission
Date 4 September 2012


This report is the second in a series that provides estimates of expenditure on services provided to Indigenous Australians by the Australian Government, and state and territory governments, for 2008-09 and 2010-11. The Report provides information on the level and patterns of expenditure, on targeted and mainstream services, across 86 expenditure categories, mapped to the Council of Australian Governments (COAG) National Indigenous Reform Agreement building blocks.

Produced for COAG, it contributes to the information available to policy makers to address the gap between outcomes for Indigenous and other Australians. When combined with other information, the Report gives a better understanding of the adequacy, effectiveness and efficiency of government expenditure on services to Indigenous Australians. It additionally identifies areas where better data or more detailed investigations are required.

The Report includes national level data in the following categories:

  • total direct Indigenous expenditure
  • mainstream and targeted (Indigenous specific) services
  • estimated expenditure per head.

The Report also includes a number of focus areas of expenditure:

  • school education
  • public and community health
  • housing.
