Summary

With slightly more than half of all Indigenous Australians now living in major cities and inner regional areas, the population is decidedly urban. It is also increasing at rates that outpace Australia's overall population growth. And while there are comparisons to be made globally, the urbanisation of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander populations - both historical and contemporary - is specific to the Australian context. The status of Indigenous Australians has been slow to improve here, in one of the world's most developed countries. Even as the urban share of the Indigenous population grows, those in cities are still more disadvantaged than their non-Indigenous neighbours.
