Key concepts of the inequality of indigenous peoples



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.
