Summary
" This paper compares employment, unemployment, and the participation of Indigenous and other Australians to determine to what extent high Indigenous unemployment and low labour participation are demand or supply caused. First, 2006 Census Indigenous labour participation rates are studied to indicate the size and location of the Indigenous working population. Second, Indigenous and non-Indigenous unemployment are compared Australia wide. Third, combined unemployment and non-labour force participation levels are compared. These comparisons showed that low Indigenous labour force participation and high unemployment are determined by labour supply. The paper then examines the principal reasons for low Indigenous labour force participation and high unemployment. The negative effects of 'pretend' jobs are assessed." [Introduction]
