Life chances and parents' employment /

by Taylor, Janet | Brotherhood of St Laurence.

Publisher: 2003Description: 10 leaves.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Includes bibliographical referencesSummary: The Brotherhood of St Laurence's longitudinal study, the Life Chances Study, provides data to explore what has happened to the employment and incomes of a small but diverse group of Australian families with young children between 1990 and 2002. While studies such as HILDA (Scutella & Wooden 2003) will trace employment patterns for large numbers of people over a period of time, the Life Chances Study can illustrate the trends in terms of the life stories of the families involved. Its 12-year time span gives it particular value. The paper draws on both the quantitative and qualitative data of the study to examine the patterns of employment and income of the families over 12 years. It examines first the overall patterns of employment. It then looks more closely at the experiences of the families who were on low-incomes at the commencement of the study and asks to what extent employment has provided a path out of poverty. Implications for policy are outlined.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).
