Abstract

Undertaking econometric modelling using samples from small populations such as Indigenous Australians, is difficult because of the data constraints facing both the researcher and the data collection agency. This paper uses the ABS’s Remote Access Data Laboratory to analyse an expanded unit record file that is only available in this form. The following analysis of the 2002 National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Survey illustrates how expanded unit record files can be used to replicate and extend existing research. In addition to confirming earlier research, the crucial importance of the early interactions with the criminal justice for perpetrating Indigenous employment disadvantage is also highlighted.
