Q: What is your definition of Indigenous and Torres Strait Islander?
A: We use the ABS definition of Indigenous status of a person, which is that status is determined by their response to the ABS Standard Indigenous Question, which asks whether a person is of Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander origin. 

Q: Am I based in rural, regional, or remote Australia?
A: We have identified places defined as Metropolitan across Australia. These are Melbourne, Sydney, Canberra, Adelaide, Brisbane, Darwin, Perth, as well as Newcastle, Wollongong, Gold Coast/Tweed Heads, Geelong, and Townsville-Thuringowa.
