Across key social and economic indicators Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in Queensland consistently experience the highest level of disadvantage. Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people are over-represented in the justice and child protection systems, they experience lower educational and training attainment, have lower incomes and higher unemployment rates, and experience a higher burden of poor health and injury across all of the life-stages.
