Family-friendly work practices : differences within and between workplaces /

by Gray, Matthew | Australian Institute of Family Studies | Tudball, Jacqueline.

Publisher: Melbourne, Vic. Australian Institute of Family Studies 2002Summary: This study analyses the extent to which access to family-friendly work practices is influenced or determined by differential access within organisations as compared with differential access between organisations. The analysis is based upon the Australian Workplace Industrial Relations Survey 1995 (AWIRS95), a linked employee—employer data set. The linked nature of the data allows information from employers and employees to be combined, providing a unique perspective on the incentives and constraints employers face when deciding which work practices to make available to which employees. These data allow the first large-scale study in Australia of differences in access to family-friendly work practices amongst employees working in the same workplace.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

Disagreement in partners' reports of financial difficulty

by Breunig, Robert | Cobb-Clark, Deborah | Gong , Xiaodong.

Publisher: Canberra, A.C.T. Australian National University. Centre for Economic Policy Research 2005Description: 35 p. ill. PDF.Online Access: DOWNLOAD PDF Notes: May 2005Summary: We use unique data in which both partners report about household finances to demonstrate that there is often disagreement about whether the household has experienced financial difficulty in the past year. Four alternative explanations for this disagreement are tested using the data. The results indicate that disagreement may be related to the severity of the underlying material hardship rather than to gender differences, information asymmetries, or individual (as opposed to household) views of financial difficulty. This implies that standard surveys which collect information about the household’s financial position from a representative individual may fail to completely characterize the nature of material hardshipAvailability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).
