Comments:

Most recent data available for 2012 CRC baseline report is 2010-11.

Results where the relative standard error is greater than 50 per cent will not be reported. Estimates with a relative standard error between 25 and 50 per cent will be noted in the data provided as having a high relative standard error and the results should be used with caution.

While the Labour Market Assistance Outcomes Report presents outcomes for Indigenous job seekers across employment service delivered by DEEWR, for this measure a single figure will be presented. It will be the number of Indigenous job seekers in employment three months after participating in employment services divided by the number of Indigenous job seekers who have received employment assistance over the previous 12 months. This will allow the data to be compared over time even though there was a change in the delivery of employment services from Job Network to Job Services Australia and the introduction of the reformed Indigenous Employment Program and the Disability Employment Services reforms.

Baseline year for NIRA target (Halve the gap in employment outcomes within a decade) is 2008; baseline year for this indicator is 2008-09; target year is 2018.
