The dynamics of child poverty in Australia.

by Abello, Annie | University of Canberra. National Centre for Social and Economic Modelling | Harding, Ann.

Publisher: Bruce, A.C.T. National Centre for Social and Economic Modelling. University of Canberra 2004Description: v, 56 p. PDF.Online Access: DOWNLOAD PDF Notes: March 2004 Summary: This paper provides new information about how family incomes and the state of poverty of Australian households with children changed from year to year in the mid-1990s. The study is based on data from the Survey of Employment and Unemployment Patterns, a longitudinal survey that followed a group of respondents between September 1994 and September 1997. The paper defines poverty according to different thresholds and the child poverty rates that result from these thresholds. The poverty rates were calculated using gross income and are not directly comparable with the usual poverty rates based on disposable income. The paper begins with a description of the extent and pattern of income dynamics among families with children. This is followed by analyses of the family characteristics of children persistently in poverty, as well as children moving into and out of poverty based on four poverty thresholds and using variables on both current and annual income. The study also investigates whether there are differences between the outcomes for all dependent children and young children (those less than 15 years old). Availability: (1)

Prosperity for all? : how low income families have fared in the boom times /

by McNamara, Justine | National Centre for Social and Economic Modelling | Lloyd, Rachel | Toohey, Matthew | Harding, Ann.

Publisher: 2005; Bruce, A.C.T. National Centre for Social and Economic Modelling. University of Canberra 2004Description: iv, 45 p. : ill. bibliog.p.32.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Also presented at the 9th AIFS Conference: Families Matter 2005; 14 October 2004 Summary: This report assesses how low-income Australian families with children have fared over the last six years, compared with other families. The researchers found that on average real incomes did rise between 1997–98 and 2004–05 for families with children in the bottom income quintile (the lowest 20%), and just kept up with increases in median family incomes. It should be noted that most of their income increase came from transfer payments (especially increased family tax benefits). The lowest income group did not, however, “catch up” relative to all families with children; and their increased incomes are likely to have been eroded by price increases such as those arising from the GST.Availability: Items available for reference: BSL Archives (1).
