Measuring employment outcomes for Indigenous Australians
AbstractThis paper presents the results of a logit estimation of employment probabilities for Australia’s Indigenous population using the 2002 National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Social Survey (NATSISS). The population is disaggregated by gender and geographic location and separate logit models are estimated for each group. The results indicate that there is substantial heterogeneity across these sub-groups and provide some evidence for incorporating this into employment models and policy outcomes. Further, the findings suggest that individuals located in urban centres will, in fact, be more employable than any other region conditional on their obtaining desired labour market characteristics.
