Estimates of poverty and social exclusion in Australia : a multidimensional approach /

by Scutella, Rosanna | Wilkins, Roger | Kostenko, Weiping | University of Melbourne. Melbourne Institute of Applied Economic and Social Research.

Publisher: Parkville, Vic. Melbourne Institute of Applied Economic and Social Research 2009Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Summary: We measure the extent of poverty and social exclusion in Australia using data from the Household, Income and Labour Dynamics in Australia (HILDA) Survey. For each individual, we construct a measure of social exclusion that recognises its multidimensionality, including its potential variability in depth at a point in time and in persistence over time. We distinguish seven dimensions or domains, as proposed in Scutella et al. (2009): material resources; employment; education and skills; health and disability; social; community; and personal safety. For each of these seven domains, several indicators of social exclusion are produced. A simple 'sum-score' method is then used to estimate the extent or depth of exclusion, with our measure a function of both the number of domains in which exclusion is experienced and the number of indicators of exclusion present within each domain. Sensitivity of findings to alternative weighting regimes for the indicators and to alternative methods, proposed by Capellari and Jenkins (2007), is examined. Persistence of exclusion is also briefly considered. Our exclusion measure identifies 20 to 30 per cent of the Australian population aged 15 years and over as experiencing 'marginal exclusion' at any given point in time. Four to six per cent are 'deeply excluded', and less than one per cent are 'very deeply excluded'. We find that, although there are commonalities in the demographic composition of the socially excluded and the income poor, there are also some important differences. For example, persons 65 years and over represent a much smaller share of the most excluded group than they do of the 'poorest'; and couple and single families with children represent a larger share of the excluded than they do of the poor.Availability: (1)

Evaluation of the Individual Budgets Pilot Programme : final report. /

by Glendinning, Caroline (et. al.).

Publisher: York, U.K. Social Policy Research Unit, University of York 2008Description: HTML.Notes: URL: '' Checked: 2/03/2009 9:55:11 AM Status: Live Details: HTTP status 200 - Usual success responseSummary: Individual Budgets (IB) are new ways of giving people who use social care services a greater say in the assessment of their needs; better understanding of how resources are allocated to meet those needs; and greater flexibility in using resources to meet individual needs and priorities. This evaluation found that IBs were generally welcomed by users because they gave them more control over their lives, but there were variations in outcomes between user groups. IBs also presented a variety of challenges and opportunities for the practitioners involved in their implementation.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

Foundations for a stronger, fairer Australia /

by Australia. Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet.

Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet 2011Description: 32 p. : ill.Online Access: Electronic copy Summary: In January 2010 the Australian Government launched a comprehensive social inclusion plan, A Stronger, Fairer Australia, which aimed to increase national prosperity and reduce disadvantage. This new report gives a snapshot of how the Government is delivering on social inclusion. What you'll read is just a sample of the work that's being done because every action the Government takes is focused on the building blocks of social inclusion: a strong economy and a strong society that leaves no one behind. The Government believes all Australians have the right to learn, work, be part of their community and be heard on issues which matter to them.Availability: (1)

From Angela?s Ashes to the Celtic Tiger : early life conditions and adult health in Ireland /

by Delaney, Liam | McGovern, Mark | Smith, James P.

Publisher: Bonn, Germany Institute for the Study of Labor 2009Description: PDF.Notes: IZA DP No. 4548Summary: We use data from the Irish census and exploit regional and temporal variation in infant mortality rates over the 20th century to examine effects of early life conditions on later life health. Our main identification is public health interventions which eliminated the Irish urban infant mortality penalty. Estimates suggest that a unit decrease in mortality rates at time of birth reduces the probability of being disabled as an adult by between .03 and .05 percentage points. We find that individuals from lower socio economic groups had marginal effects of reduced infant mortality twice as large as those at the top.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).
