Exploring indigenous over-representation in youth detention

Team Name: 
Justice league

This project analysed AIHW Youth Detention data and combined ABS Estiimated Resident Population projections to derive rate per 10,000 figures for indigenous and non-indigenous youth in detention. The data shows a stark difference in the rates with a decreasing rate of non-indigenous children in detention and  increasing indigenous rates (over the period 2008-2015), particularly in the Northern and Western parts of Australia.
