Match making : using data-matching to find people missing out on government assistance /

by Baker, David | The Australia Institute.

Publisher: Bruce, A.C.T. The Australia Institute 2012Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: April 2012 Includes bibliography and appendicesSummary: Data-matching -- cross-checking income and personal details held by one agency against similar data held by other agencies, primarily the Australian Taxation Office -- is typically used to identify overpayments amongst existing welfare assistance recipients. This paper considers how data-matching could also be used to improve the delivery of social security assistance payments rather than simply as a revenue raising exercise. The Australia Institute analysed the Centrelink administered Parenting Payment in order to estimate how many people may be missing out on assistance payments. Finds that the number of people estimated to be missing out on assistance payments (2008-2009) is greater than the number of people committing welfare fraud and is closer to the number receiving an overpaymentAvailability: (1)

The political economy of reform: lessons from pensions, product markets and labour markets in ten OECD countries /

by Tompson, William.

Publisher: Paris, FranceGeneral Economics & Future Studies Vol. 2009, no. 7, pp. 1 - 501 2009Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Summary: This report examines why some policy reforms get implemented and others languish by examining 20 structural reform efforts in 10 OECD countries over the past two decades. The case studies cover a wide variety of reform attempts in three key areas: pensions, labour- and product-market regulation. Key factors in the political, economic and reform-specific arenas are identified as helping or hindering reform, and these findings are cross-checked using a relatively simple set of Spearman rank correlations. The report's two-pronged analytical approach - quantitative and qualitative - results in unique insights for policy makers designing, adopting and implementing structural policy reforms.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

Understanding and improving data quality relating to low-income households. /

by Johnson, David | Scutella, Rosanna.

Publisher: [Parkville, Vic.] Melbourne Institute of Applied Economic and Social Research 2003Description: 74 p.Online Access: Electronic copy Summary: In this report the issues concerning the reliability of data and the implications for the measurement of inequality, poverty and social welfare are explored. There are both conceptual and practical issues of concern. The conceptual issues relate to the choice of the most appropriate unit of observation, period of observation, metric of measurement and source of data. The most natural unit of observation is the income unit, but since income units may share resources such as housing, the most practical unit is the household. Income data are generally available on both a current weekly basis and an annual basis. Some expenditure data are available on a current basis but lumpiness of expenditure in relation to durables and housing often mean that annual data will be the most reliable measure for small groups. There are enduring debates about the usefulness of concepts of poverty, relative and absolute; and of measures of inequality in describing the circumstances of people. There are also longstanding debates about the limitations of measurement relying on income and expenditure which are narrow measures of circumstance, and which ignore the benefits of in-kind provision of health, education and other services.Availability: (1)
