The Council of Australian Governments commissioned a regular report against key indicators of Indigenous disadvantage in April 2002.
The report has an important long-term objective…..to inform Australian governments about whether policy programs and interventions are achieving positive outcomes for Indigenous people. The report intends to help guide where further work is needed. The latest edition of the report, Overcoming Indigenous Disadvantage: Key Indicators 2011, was released (today) 25 August 2011.
Commissioner Robert Fitzgerald is the convenor of the Indigenous Disadvantage Working Group of the Steering Committee for the Review of Government Service Provision which produces the Overcoming Indigenous Disadvantage: Key Indicators report.
