Socio-economic deprivation of Australia's stolen generation

This article presents a detailed examination of survey data on the circumstances of two groups of indigenous people: one consisting of indigenous people who, in their childhood, had been separated from their parents and one consisting of those who had not been separated. In almost all cases the separated group was worse off. On average they had left school earlier, were less likely to have educational qualifications and were less likely to be employed. Copyright.
