Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people with disability: wellbeing, participation and support

Australian Institute of Health and Welfare,

Published Literature

2011

This report explores the experience of Indigenous people with disability compared with Indigenous people without disability and all Australians with similar severity of disability. It addresses how they are faring in terms of five key areas reflecting aspects of participation in the context of prevalence rates. Indigenous people in Australia have rates of ill-health and disability substantially higher than other Australians. Census 2006 data suggest that Indigenous people are 2-3 times more likely to need assistance with the core activities of daily living (self-care, communication and mobility) than non-Indigenous people.
