Child social exclusion : an updated index from the 2006 Census. /

by McNamara, Justine | Harding, Ann | Daly, Anne.

Publisher: Canberra, A.C.T. National Centre for Social and Economic Modelling (NATSEM). University of Canberra 2008Description: PDF.Notes: URL: '' Checked: 2/03/2009 9:54:00 AM Status: Live Details: HTTP status 200 - Usual success response Family & early yearsSummary: Much research about child poverty and disadvantage provides national estimates of child wellbeing, due to the ready availability of microdata at the national level. However, an increasing body of evidence suggests that there can be major differences in well-being between children living in different geographic areas. In addition, much recent debate has focussed on moving beyond income poverty to broader measures of social exclusion. This article describes the development of a composite index of child social exclusion risk for Australian small areas, using recently available 2006 Australian Bureau of Statistics Census data, and building on earlier work based on 2001 Census data. Variables included in the index are based on characteristics of children s parents, families and households, and include data about parental partnership status, employment and volunteerism, family educational attainment and occupation, household income, housing, transport and internet connection. Results show that there are pronounced spatial differences in the risk of child social exclusion, with areas of high social exclusion risk common in Australia s rural and regional balance, and in clusters of outer areas in most of Australia s capital cities.

This book is the second in a series of books which will report on the findings from the data and follows on from "Children of the 21st Century: From Birth to Nine Months" (The Policy Press, 2005). It takes an extended look at the children's lives and development as they grow and begin formal education, and the implications for family policy, and service planning in health and social services. The chapters in this book are written by experts across a wide range of social science and health fields and form a unique look at the early lives of children that cuts across disciplinary boundaries. It is essential reading for academics, students and researchers in these fields. It will also be of interest to policy makers and practitioners with an interest in children's early years, family life, child development, child poverty, childcare and education and health care.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)

Decent childhoods : reframing the fight to end child poverty /

by Bell, Kate | Decent Childhoods | Strelitz, Jason.

Publisher: n.p. Decent Childhoods 2011Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Summary: Decent Childhoods: reframing the fight to end child poverty comes out of a lengthy process of discussion and research. Baroness Ruth Lister responded and the debate which followed reached a consensus that Labour's anti-poverty politics had not succeeded in engaging the public and that a radical rethink was required. Decent Childhoods is the outcome of that debate. Kate and Jason ask the right questions, and they issue a challenge to create a new politics of poverty. It is going to need one. The Institute for Fiscal Studies has predicted that child poverty will increase by 2020, and that the statutory target to halve child poverty will be missed. The Coalition Government's rapid and radical cuts in public spending not only threaten a new recession, but they will also blight a great many lives.Availability: (1)
