Abstract: An essential policy issue for the Community Development Employment Projects (CDEP) scheme is to project the likely future demand for places. This paper revisits previous estimates of such demand with the aim of adjusting these to account for subsequent increases in CDEP employment and to incorporate recent estimates of the effect of indigenous people who are discouraged from seeking work. While changes in the size and structure of the population remain the key factors underlying future demand for CDEP, the revision of the Indigenous labour market dynamics in this article provides new benchmarks for future estimates of general employment needs of Indigenous Australians.

Notes: A good current paper discussing the future of CDEP participation e.g. the demand for participants (in relation to the changed Indigenous labour market situation).
