The Challenge of ‘Closing the Gaps’ in Indigenous Socioeconomic Outcomes

Abstract

This briefing paper was prepared for the Australia 2020 Summit in April 2008. It examines trends and predictions for key Indigenous socioeconomic indicators in the context of the Rudd Government's policy commitment to eliminate the life expectancy gap between Indigenous and other Australians by 2030. (An expanded version of this paper is forthcoming in the CAEPR Working Paper series.)
