    In 2009, the Council of Australian Governments committed to 'halve the gap in employment outcomes between Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians within a decade (by 2018)' (PMC 2018: 76). Data from the most recent Closing the Gap report suggest that this target is not on track to be met (PMC 2018). Indeed, as will be shown in this article, the gap has widened rather than narrowed over the past decade, and shown little overall change since the turn of the century, when measured using census data.
