Over the next few weeks, interviewers from the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) will be collecting information from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in the City of Greater Geraldton area.
The interviewees are an important part of the 11,500 sample of people randomly selected to participate in the National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Social Survey (NATSISS) across Australia.
The aim of NATSISS is to measure the progress of Australia’s Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people since the survey was last conducted in 2008. The survey covers a broad range of topics, such as experiences of homelessness, access to services, and health; and is used to inform policy and funding decisions around programs and services for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people across Australia.
