Deaths rates for infants and children have declined since 1986, rates of risky drinking and smoking among children aged 12-14 are down, and most children achieve above the minimum standards for reading and numeracy. But there is still room for improvement. Almost one-quarter of children are developmentally vulnerable at school entry, and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children and children in socioeconomic disadvantaged areas are likely to fare worse across a broad range of indicators.Availability: (1)

by Davidson, Jacqueline | Great Britain. Department for Work and Pensions.

Publisher: Sheffield, U.K. Great Britain. Department for Work and Pensions 2011Description: PDF.Other title: Great Britain. Department for Work and Pensions research.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Appendices pp. 55-83 Bibliography pp. 84-86 INTO AND OUT OF WORKSummary: There has been much emphasis on increasing the employment rate in the United Kingdom (UK) in recent years and policy has increasingly been geared towards increasing the labour market participation of people with traditionally high rates of non-employment, such as disabled people. The introduction of the Employment and Support Allowance (ESA) with increased conditionality can be seen as an attempt to get more disabled people into work and participating in work-related activity, which raises questions about employment opportunities in the labour market for disabled people. For example, it is already known that people can face discrimination in employment recruitment procedures according to age, gender, ethnicity and disability and research has highlighted that disabled job applicants may be discriminated against when compared to non-disabled applicants with similar skills and experience.Availability: (1)
