This paper examines how the Northern Territory's Indigenous demography has changed over recent decades, and assessment made possible by a recently constructed Indigenous demographic database covering the period 1996-2001. The paper then presents population forecasts to 2031 prepared with a new population projection program specially designed to model the population by indigenous status. The results show that considerable growth and modest ageing of the NT Indigenous population may be expected.
