Key concepts of the inequality of indigenous peoples

04/19/2024

Description:

Statistically tracking the indigenous population is no easy matter, because of their diverse definitions of what constitutes an indigenous person. For statistical purposes, the main method used is whether a person self-identifies as indigenous. This approach has been incorporated into most censuses, although to a much lesser extent in sectoral surveys, thereby complicating this population’s statistical visibility. Other concepts such as their cosmovisions and concepts of well-being are essential to understanding this population group’s inequality gaps.
