Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander child safety – AIHW – 5 May 2011

“This paper provides an overview of key measures of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander child safety, presenting a range of information relating to child injury and violence; child protection; and juvenile justice. National data show that Indigenous children are over-represented across a range of measures¿for example, Indigenous children were 5 times as likely as non-Indigenous children to experience a hospital separation for assault; 8 times as likely to be the subject of substantiated child abuse or neglect; and 15 times as likely to be under juvenile justice supervision.”
