Alternative approaches to measuring rental housing affordability in Australia. /

by Landt, John | National Centre for Social and Economic Modelling | Bray, Rob.

Publisher: Canberra, A.C.T National Centre for Social and Economic Modelling, University of Canberra 1997Description: v, 49 p. ; 21 cm.Other title: NATSEM. Discussion paper ; no. 16.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: April 1997. Includes bibliographical references.Summary: The study analyses a range of approaches to measuring housing affordability in the Australian private rental market. In particular, it compares traditional consumption-based measures of housing affordability with a new measure of housing affordability based on the Canadian core housing need model, which includes the suitability of the dwelling for the household's needs as well as its cost. The main findings of the study are that low income earners in the private rental market generally pay rents similar to those of higher income earners. This results in housing stress for some low income families and individuals in the private rental market.Availability: (1)

Assessing cost-effectiveness in prevention : (ACE-Prevention) : final report /

by Vos, Theo | University of Queensland, School of Population Health, Centre for the Burden of Disease and Cost-Effectiveness | Carter, Rob | Barendregt, Jan | Mihalopoulos, Cathrine | Veerman, Lennert | Magnus, Anne | Cobiac, Linda.

Publisher: Brisbane, Qld. and Melbourne, Vic. University of Queensland, School of Population Health, Centre for the Burden of Disease and Cost-Effectiveness and Deakin University, Deakin Health Economics, Strategic Research Centre-Population Health 2010Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: September 2010 NHMRC Grant No. 351558 This report was produced jointly by the Centre for the Burden of Disease and Cost-Effectiveness, School of Population Health, University of Queensland, Brisbane and Deakin Health Economics, Strategic Research Centre-Population Health, Deakin University, Melbourne. The work was funded by the National Health and Medical Research Council. Bibliography : p. 65-70Summary: This report has evaluated the cost-effectiveness of 150 preventive health interventions, addressing areas such as mental health, diabetes, tobacco use, alcohol use, nutrition, body weight, physical activity, blood pressure, blood cholesterol and bone mineral density. It challenges us to learn more from intervention experiences in tobacco control and sun safety, which have demonstrated enormous benefit in the past from well-targeted and sustained activity. Similar success is possible in areas such as alcohol use and obesity, which have received low levels of investment in past decades. Additional investment, however, should not be at the expense of continuing effort in the areas in which we are making inroads.Availability: (1)

Australia's ageing population : how important are family structures? /

by Walker, Agnes | National Centre for Social and Economic Modelling.

Publisher: Canberra, A.C.T. National Centre for Social and Economic Modelling, University of Canberra 1997Description: v, 58 p. ; 21 cm.Other title: NATSEM. Discussion paper ; no. 19.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: May 1997 Includes bibliographical references.Summary: In Australia, as in most Western economies, concerns about the impact of the ageing of the population have led to a series of policy initiatives that generally aim to assign greater responsibility to individuals for the costs associated with ageing. ; Analyses of the effects of ageing published to date have tended to rely on aggregate projections of population and age structures. Interdependencies between individuals have rarely been taken into account, and it is only in some recent studies that the complex relationship between family structures and the size of government social expenditure has been recognised. Such studies cite broad statistics on the significant support that older people offer their families and on the importance of family members as carers for the aged. ; In this paper traditional approaches to studying the effects of ageing in the population are reviewed and a complementary approach, using dynamic microsimulation, is discussed. The advantage of dynamic microsimulation is that, in projecting future population patterns, the life cycles of individuals can be tracked, along with their family characteristics (such as spouses, children and grandparents) and household characteristics (including finances and wealth accumulation). ; The paper concludes with an account of the development work on dynamic microsimulation modelling at NATSEM, indicating the areas where this tool will be best able to advance understanding of age related policy issues.Availability: (1)

Child Care Availability, Quality and Affordability : Are Local Problems Related to Maternal Labour Supply? /

by Breunig, Robert | Australia. Treasury | Gong, Xiaodong.

Publisher: Parkes, ACT Australia. Treasury 2010Description: PDF.Other title: Treasury working paper ; no. 2010-02.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: April 2010 INTO AND OUT OF WORKSummary: We examine whether subjective responses to survey questions about child care availability, quality, and cost, aggregated at the local geographical level, have any explanatory power in models of workforce participation and labour supply. We find that married women who live in areas with more reports of lack of availability, low quality, or costly childcare work less than women in areas with fewer reported difficulties with child care. We find this effect on both the hours of labour supplied and on the part-time/full-time choice. We find almost no effects for lone parents.Availability: (1)

Complementary or contradictory? : an analysis of the design of climate policies in Australia /

by Denniss, Richard | Australia Institute | Macintosh, Andrew.

Publisher: Manuka, A.C.T. Australia Institute 2011Description: PDF.Other title: Australia Institute. Policy brief ; no. 22.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: February 2011Summary: Contrary to popular belief, the policies that are most effective in driving down greenhouse gas emissions actually raise revenue rather than cost the budget money. The Gillard Government has recently scrapped, or wound back, a range of policies designed to help reduce greenhouse gasses in order to ensure the budget returns quickly to surplus. These policies, including the Cleaner Car Rebate, Green Car Innovation Fund, Green Start Program (the ironically named replacement to the Green Loan scheme as the replacement was scrapped before it started), and the Solar Homes and Communities Plan, are often called 'complementary policies' as they are designed to complement the operation of a (as yet unseen) carbon price. This paper outlines the circumstances in which such complementary policies are required and then assesses whether the recent decision to modify and abolish a wide range of these complementary policies was justified.Availability: (1)
