New data gives greater insights into Australia's economy

New official data being released today will give Australians greater insights into key sectors of the economy. Assistant Treasurer Michael Sukkar said the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) will today publish the first instalment of a new monthly economic indicator, looking at business turnover. "There has never been a greater need for timely, accurate data on Australia's economy than now as businesses and the government plan the recovery ahead," Minister Sukkar said. "This new economic data will provide businesses and governments with more timely information to enable them to do this.

New program to fund research into Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander criminal justice

The national Indigenous Justice Research Program (IJRP) has been established today as part of the Government's commitment to the National Agreement on Closing the Gap . The IJRP will fund academic research relating to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander criminal justice and aim to reduce the number of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in detention. Minister for Home Affairs Karen Andrews said closing the gap was vitally important, not just for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples but for all Australians. Minister for Indigenous Australians Ken Wyatt said a solid research and evidence base will support all parties to meet and exceed the targets to reduce Indigenous over-representation in the criminal justice system.
