ANU Centre for Aboriginal Economic Policy Research (CAEPR)
The Centre for Aboriginal Economic Policy Research (CAEPR) is a unique national and international centre, a leading research think-tank on Indigenous policy issues, and operates in a complex political arena. Since 1990 it has established an unrivalled reputation and track record in a difficult public policy area of national significance. A central goal at CAEPR is to continue to create and build long-term partnerships with Indigenous stakeholders with a view to supporting and working with key individuals and organisations in the areas of research, education and policy development.
The Centre is funded from a variety of sources including the ANU, the Australian Research Council, industry and philanthropic partners, the Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet, and State and Territory governments. The principal objective of CAEPR is to undertake high-quality, independent research that will assist in furthering the social and economic development and empowerment of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people throughout Australia. It aims to combine academic and teaching excellence on Indigenous economic and social development and public policy with realism, objectivity and relevance.
CAEPR is committed to disseminating its research as widely as possible through print and electronic publication. Since 1991, we have undertaken an active publications program. The following publications are included in this collection:
CAEPR Discussion Paper series (ISSN 1036-1774) (1991-2009, 2014-Present)
This series was published in hardcopy from 1991 to 2009 and reintroduced in July 2014 with Discussion Paper No. 290/2014. The Discussion Papers are internally and externally refereed, and enable research findings to be disseminated without the delays associated with publication in academic journals.
CAEPR Working Paper series (ISSN 1442-3871) (1999-Present)
This series was established in 1999 to facilitate publishing papers of a more technical nature online via the CAEPR web site. With the expansion of publishing online, which enhances the CAEPR commitment to open access to research findings, the CAEPR Working Paper series has incorporated the CAEPR Discussion Paper series.
CAEPR Research Monograph series (ISSN 1036-6962)
This series publishes collated research results and/or analysis of policy on major themes or issues, the proceedings of workshops or conferences, or reports on major pieces of consultancy research.
CAEPR Topical Issues (2002-Present)
This series presents a broad range of documents by CAEPR staff relating to contemporary issues and debates in Indigenous Affairs. They include media opinion pieces, articles, submissions, interviews, sound recordings and links to external documents, beginning in 2002.
Indigenous Population Project Series: 2011 Census Papers (2012-Present)
In this series, authors from the Centre for Aboriginal Economic Policy Research (CAEPR) document the changing composition and distribution of a range of Indigenous outcomes using the 2011 Census data. One of the more important results contained in the data was the fact that the number of people who identified as being Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander (Indigenous) had increased by 20.5 per cent since the 2006 Census. There were also significant changes in the characteristics of the Indigenous population across a number of key variables like language spoken at home, housing, education and other socioeconomic variables. In this series, authors from the Centre for Aboriginal Economic Policy Research (CAEPR) document the changing composition and distribution of a range of Indigenous outcomes. The analysis in the series was funded by the Commonwealth Department of Families, Housing, Community Services and Indigenous Affairs (FaHCSIA) through the Strategic Research Project as well as FaHCSIA and State/Territory governments through the Indigenous Populations Project.
