The household and family structure of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander population is one of the most important demographic indicators. It provides insights into the level of demand for services and facilities targeted at particular household types, and the structure of the local indigenous community. Across Australia, indigenous households are more likely to be larger families and one parent families, but this varies from area to area, so it is important to compare to the populations across geographic benchmarks.

Please note that this is a household topic. Households are counted as indigenous if they contain one or more indigenous usual residents present on Census night.

Indigenous households cannot be visitor only or other non-classifiable households, so those categories are excluded from this topic. For that reason, percentage distributions may not match those in the main household types page of profile.id, which includes these categories.

To continue building the story, indigenous household type should be viewed in conjunction with Household Size, Age Structure and Number of Bedrooms .

Derived from the Census question:

‘What is the person’s relationship (to each other person in the household)?’
