Indigenous Children in the Northern Territory
I am trying to find statistics on the abuse of children in the Northern Territory that 'sparked' the rush on the intervention.
For example, these statistics might show how much more likely indigenous are to be abused and/or sexually abused than non indigenous.
Are there any statistics that show the percenatage of indigenous Australians that have been abused?
Statistics related to Australia's Indigenous population, including health and social issues, can be found on the Australian Bureau of Statistics website. Use the 'Past and Future releases' tab to find statistics for previous years. The downloadable reports include statistics on child abuse and neglect.
The Australian Human Rights Commission has a statistical overview of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples in Australia including child protection.
There are also a number of websites that provide reports and other information about the Northern Territory National Emergency Response, or intervention. Many of them describe the development of the program and others provide supporting documents and evidence such as statistics.
