Abstract RESEARCH AIM
The latest figures from the Australian Bureau of Statistics Prison Census indicate increasing numbers of Indigenous people are incarcerated in Northern Territory prisons.  As a result, there are potential social, economic and demographic impacts for small and remote communities in the Territory from which those in jail originate. This research focuses particularly on the demographic impacts for individual communities and attempts to articulate the types of demographic effects a community of an average demographic structure might experience. The research aims to highlight the magnitude of the impacts for some communities as well as to advocate for a targeting of resources towards reducing the gap in incarceration rates between Indigenous and other Australians
