1 Dec 2004
Description

Jon Altman, Boyd Hunter and Nicholas Biddle examine trends across a number of socioeconomic outcomes for Indigenous Australians from the 1967 referendum to the present, using four Censuses of Population and Housing carried out by the Australian Bureau of Statistics in 1971, 1981, 1991 and 2001.
