The overrepresentation of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people under youth justice supervision has further risen over the past five years, despite a decrease in overall numbers, according to new data.

The Australian Institute of Health and Welfare’s (AIHW) Youth Justice in Australia 2017–18 report, released on Friday, shows the rate of Indigenous people aged 10–17 under supervision on an average day in 2017-18 (187 per 10,000) was around 17 times higher than that of non-Indigenous young people (11 per 10,000).
