This second volume in the series, The Aboriginal Component in the Australian Economy, consists of four case studies of Aboriginal communities living as minority populations in medium-sized and small towns and cities in different parts of Australia. Elspeth Young discusses surveys made of a number of New South Wales country towns. Jenny Bryant writes about Robinvale, on the Victorian side of the River Murray. David Drakakis Smith's study is of the Alice Springs community. The fourth chapter, by Hans Dagmar, gives an account of the Aboriginal community of Carnarvon, Western Australia. The studies indicate a general movement of Aborigines into towns and cities. Housing, income, employment, health and education all show improvement since the 1960s, but are still at a level lower than that of the general community.
