Indigenous employment and the hard policy choices
Over the last three decades Aboriginal employment growth, outside of CDEP, has been extremely disappointing. Indeed, the full-time employment-population ratio remains at about 60 per cent of that of white Australians. We document the nature of employment growth and the data needed to more adequately explain the reasons for this disappointing outcome. We especially highlight the marked differences between employment stocks and flows and the importance of linking these two employment measures together to adequately understand the dynamics of this labour market. If employment prospects are to improve it seems inevitable that Indigenous people will have to move to where employment opportunities exist. The paper highlights the need to think of Indigenous employment and employment policy more in the context of an economic and social system where there can be a considerable geographic separation between the work place for the traditional home.
