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).

Children's perspectives on economic adversity : a review of the literature /

by Redmond, Gerry | University of New South Wales. Social Policy Research Centre.

Publisher: Sydney, N.S.W. Social Policy Research Centre. University of New South Wales 2008Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Summary: "This paper reviews some of the recent qualitative literature on children s perspectives on economic disadvantage. The idea of asking people who experience disadvantage about their own situations is still a relatively new one in the social sciences, and the idea of asking children about their own perceptions of economic and social disadvantage is even more recent. Nine analyses, all published since 1998, and all of them involving in-depth interviews or groupwork with children aged between 5 and 17, are examined in detail. Most of these studies develop frameworks based on the new sociology of childhood , which emphasises the social construction of childhood and children s agency in the context of child-adult relations. The nine studies cover a number of issues related to economic disadvantage, including exclusion from activities and peer groups at school and in the community; perceptions of poor and affluent children; participation in organised activities outside of school hours; methods of coping with financial hardship; support for parents in coping and in seeking and keeping employment, and aspirations for future careers and lives..." -- SPRC websiteAvailability: (1)
