New research finds 1 in 5 Indigenous births not registered

Thousands of Aboriginal children in Western Australia are living with no official identity. 

Research that has been released to coincide with NAIDOC week, reveals the births of one in five Aboriginal children were not registered between 1996 and 2012. 

Baker IDI Heart and Diabetes Institute Professor Sandra Eades has told Gareth Parker on the 6PR Morning Show, not having a registered birth can cause major difficulties later in life.
