Welfare expenditure Australia /

by Australian Institute of Health and Welfare.

Publisher: Canberra, A.C.T. Australian Institute of Health and Welfare 1999 -Summary: Welfare expenditure broadly comprises spending on welfare services and cash payments. Welfare-related aims are also supported by tax expenditures or foregone revenue such as tax exemptions, offsets and deductions that can be claimed for certain activities or by particular classes of taxpayer. Expenditure on both welfare services and cash payments has been based on who the payments or services are targeted at, using the ABS Government Purpose Classification (GPC) for financial transactions for welfare services. The four target groups are families and children, older people, people with disability, and others (such as Indigenous Australians, widows, refugees and migrants). ; Cash payments (or benefits) include pensions, carer allowances and parenting payments which provide income support for older people, people with disability, people who provide care for others, families with children, and war veterans and their families. One-off payments such as those made as part of the Economic Security Strategy are also included. ; Welfare services comprise services for which payments are made, for example child care services, or home and community care services for older people or people with disability. Spending on welfare services includes employee expenses, program costs, concessions and fees that clients paid. Assistance provided to meet child care costs, such as the Child Care Benefit and Child Care Tax Rebate is included in welfare services. Welfare spending, defined according to the four GPC welfare services categories, does not include all government spending on welfare services programs. For example, some programs relevant to people with disability are in GPC categories of education, health or housing.Availability: No items available

The transition from unemployment to work : are casual jobs a short cut to permanent employment?

by Chalmers, Jenny | University of New South Wales. Social Policy Research Centre | Kalb, Guyonne.

Publisher: Sydney, N.S.W. Social Policy Research Centre. University of New South Wales 2000Description: 43 p. PDF.Other title: SPRC Discussion Paper no. 109.Online Access: DOWNLOAD PDF Notes: October 2000 Summary: This study examines the effect of casual work in shortening the time taken to move from unemployment into permanent work using longitudinal data from the Survey of Employment and Unemployment Patterns. The analysis is based on comparison of the transition rate from unemployment to permanent work with the combined transition rates of unemployment to casual work and casual work to permanent work. We use hazard rate models to estimate each of the transition rates. The models include observed and unobserved heterogeneity and allow for correlation between the transition rates. The evidence presented suggests that disadvantaged unemployed people can benefit from accepting casual work in their search for permanent work, although they are still less likely than others to obtain permanent work.Availability: (1)
