A Probit Analysis of Aboriginal Employment Prospects in New South Wales

Author

  • Ross, Russell

Abstract

Using data from the 1986-87 Survey of Working Age Aborigines in New South Wales, this paper presents the results of a probit analysis to determine the characteristics that differentiate employed Aborigines from Aborigines not in employment. The results of the probit analysis show the importance of the acquisition of human capital to the employment success of Aborigines, at least in New South Wales. Increments in level of education, previous participation in formal labor market programs, and previous employment experience all have significant, positive impacts on the likelihood of individual Aborigines being in employment.
