This 2001 study by Drs Sheila Cameron and Bruce Duncan, ‘Surviving, not living’: disadvantage in Melbourne, offers a glimpse into the world of 40 men and women struggling against severe economic and social disadvantage. The overall statistics about such people are already available, but Catholic Social Services here seeks to understand more keenly what it is like for these people.
