Aboriginal child abuse rates rise - report

RATES of child abuse and imprisonment among adults have increased, a national report into Aboriginal disadvantage says. The fifth Overcoming Indigenous Disadvantage report released today was prepared for the Council of Australian Governments (COAG) and tracks how governments are going in closing the gap between indigenous and non-indigenous Australians.
It found Aboriginal children are now seven times as likely to be abused as non-indigenous Australians.
