Summary

The Stolen Generations experienced forced removal from families and disconnection from Indigenous culture and land, resulting in significant negative impacts. The Australian Government has commissioned a study to identify the size, characteristics, and needs of the Stolen Generations, using both quantitative and qualitative data sources. This report presents the findings of the quantitative research, drawing largely on data from the National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Survey (NATSIHS) and the National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Social Survey (NATSISS). It compares health, socioeconomic, and cultural outcomes for surviving members of the Stolen Generations, their descendants, similar Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people who did not experience any type of removal, and similar non-Indigenous people. The analysis finds that The Stolen Generations experienced a range of adverse outcomes at a rate higher than their Indigenous peers who had not been removed, including higher rates of incarceration, welfare reliance, poor health, and homelessness. Their descendants also fared poorly. Methodological issues and proxy measures are also discussed.
