Steering Committee for the Review of Commonwealth Service Provision (2005)

Overcoming Indigenous disadvantage: key indicators 2005: report.

Canberra: Productivity Commission

The Council of Australian Governments has commissioned the Steering Committee for the Review of Commonwealth Service Provision to provide regular reports against key indicators of Indigenous disadvantage. The aims are to inform Australian governments about whether policy programs and interventions are achieving positive outcomes for Indigenous people and to identify where further work is needed.

This is the second report produced by the Steering Committee. It documents the indicator framework and reports on various indicators of Indigenous disadvantage and seven strategic areas for action:

  • early childhood development and growth;
  • early school engagement and performance;
  • positive childhood and transition to adulthood;
  • substance use and misuse;
  • functional and resilient families and communities;
  • effective environmental health systems; and
  • economic participation and development.

The report documents some improvements in indicators since the last report in 2003 (although caution is needed in some data comparisons), but for many indicators there has been little or no movement. The Steering Committee will continue to document the development of the indicator framework, and produce a regular report against key indicators of Indigenous disadvantage as part of the process of continuing improvement.
