Income fluctuations over the lifecycle: A cohort analysis of Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians, 1986-96

Hunter, Boyd; Gray, Matthew


The myth of equality in Australian society is clearly exposed by the large income gap between indigenous and other Australians. Data from the 1986, 1991 and 1996 Censuses is used to conduct a cohort analysis of the income distributions for indigenous and non-indigenous males and females. Single-year age cohorts are used in the first longitudinal regression analysis of indigenous income. Trends in relative income deprivation are identified.
