There are more than 517 000 Aboriginal Australians

Many First Australians experience vast differences in health, education, employment, and standards of living compared to their non-Aboriginal counterparts. Understanding these inequalities is the first step to reconciling the differences between us.

Did you know that Aboriginal Australians…
  • Have an estimated life expectancy up to 11.5 years lower than non-indigenous Australians.
  • Are up to 46 times more likely to die from diabetes.
  • Have an infant mortality rate twice as high.
  • Have an unemployment rate 3.4 times higher than the national average.
  • Are three times more likely to be homeless.
