Populations

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people make up 4% of the Western Australian (WA) population [33909]. Almost 13% of Australia’s Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people live in WA.

The age structure of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander population in WA is different from that of the general population: more of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander population is in younger age-groups than the non-Indigenous population, and fewer are in older age-groups (65 years and over) [33909].

In this section, you’ll find specific information about Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Western Australians in different population groups including: babies, children, adolescents, women, men, older people and offenders.
