Determinants of wellbeing for Indigenous Australians examines the wellbeing of Indigenous Australians and factors that may contribute to this. The focus is on subjective wellbeing but a number of objective measures of wellbeing are also considered. Compared with non-Indigenous Australians, Indigenous people tended to report lower levels of emotional wellbeing but they were more likely to say that they were satisfied with life.
