To examine the potential impacts of the migration intentions of Indigenous women. This research brief discusses the phenomenon known as ‘female flight’ which has been observed in many remote parts of countries overseas and has impacted on the viability and cohesion of Indigenous communities in particular. Some exploratory data drawn from the Census of Population and Housing provided by the Australian Bureau of Statistics, is presented to postulate whether and how female flight might impact on settlement patterns and  demographic change in the Territory.
