Indigenous poverty and policy approaches in urban NSW: a multidimensional study

Rebecca Reeve

Research output: Contribution to conferenceAbstract


This presentation focuses on the second statistical phase of my research into Indigenous poverty in urban NSW, which is currently in progress. I have built a simultaneous equations model of the theoretical causes of Indigenous disadvantage in urban NSW, to be estimated using data from the 2002 National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Social Survey (NATSISS). The model employs a two stage approach, due to endogeneity, and a combination of logit, multinomial logit and least squares methods. To avoid bias resulting from non-random sampling, the analysis incorporates replicate weights to account for the complex survey design of NATSISS. The results from this phase of my research, together with my previous results from measuring degree of Indigenous Poverty in urban NSW, will inform an assessment of whether current policies are targeting the areas expected to have the greatest long run impact on improving Indigenous wellbeing.
