Indigenous Jobs Growth and Unemployment, 1996-2006: The Role of CDEP Scheme Jobs
AbstractAn essential policy issue for the Community Development Employment Projects (CDEP) scheme is to project the likely future demand for places. This paper revisits previous estimates of such demand with the aim of adjusting these to account for subsequent increase in CDEP employment and to incorporate recent estimates of the effect of Indigenous people who are discouraged from seeking work. While changes in the size and structure of the population remain the key factor underlying future demand for CDEP, the revision of the Indigenous labour market dynamics in this article provides new benchmarks for future estimates of general employment needs of Indigenous Australians.
