UnitingCare Children, Young People and Families have developed this report with NATSEM in order to provide important evidence relating to the current and future wellbeing of Australia's children. The purpose of this report is to provide the most recent information around children living in disadvantaged circumstances in Australia. As disadvantage can constitute a number of definitions and aspects of an individual's life, we have selected a combination of indicators to best demonstrate patterns and areas including geographical and population groups that are more vulnerable to disadvantage. Well established measures of disadvantage - income poverty and rental stress have been examined throughout the report to show an overall picture of disadvantage. This is supplemented by essential geographical data that allows important distinctions across space to be uncovered. A multi-dimensional measure of disadvantage - social exclusion is examined for children in Australia across regions to further understand the complex nature and variation in disadvantage.
