Summary
Overrepresentation in the criminal justice system has been attributed to Indigenous disadvantage (Royal Commission into Aboriginal Deaths in Custody), alcohol abuse and substance abuse and/or passive welfare dependence; to date there has been little rigorous emp;riical research into the factors that distringuish Indigenous Australians who come into contact with the criminal justice system from those who do not; analysis of the 2002 National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Social Survey (NATSISS) strongly suggests that economic stress, welfare dependence and unemployment are strongly correlated with whether or not an Indigenous respondent has been arrested and with the number of times and Indigenous respondent has been arrested in the past five years; the strongest correlate, however, is alcohol abuse; discusses the implications of these findings for research and policy on Indigenous contact with the justice system
