This book from the late 1980s draws on the stories of 57 families who agreed to keep detailed records of their income and expenditure for a year, so that others might understand the effects of poverty on people s lives. Readers in later decades might well ask themselves how much has changed since Aussie battlers was written.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (3).

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).
