Carbon use in poor Victorian households by local government area

by Unkles, Bill | Brotherhood of St Laurence | Stanley, Janet.

Publisher: Fitzroy, Vic. Brotherhood of St Laurence 2008Description: 5 p. : maps + appendices.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Includes bibliographical references (p. 5) April 2008Summary: As the imposition of a carbon price is planned in Australia to encourage movement away from carbon-based energy, this mapping exercise illustrates the uneven pattern of carbon use by poor households across Melbourne and across Victoria. The pattern is largely related to transport and urban planning issues. The findings point to the need for policies which will offset the regressive impact of a carbon price, to ensure that disadvantaged households are not unfairly penalised.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1), BSL Archives (1).

Child poverty : a review /

by Bradbury, Bruce | Australia. Department of Family and Community Services.

Department of Family and Community Services..Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Bibliography : p. 57-62Summary: The central message of this paper is that child poverty is much more complicated than just looking at income levels. In determining how a child's needs are met, it is important to consider how resources are shared and used within a household, the value of other services provided (eg child care, education) and the value of parental careAvailability: (1)

Child well-being and sole parent family structure in the OECD : an analysis /

by Chapple, Simon | Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development.

Publisher: Paris, France OECD 2009Description: PDF.Other title: OECD social, employment and migration working paper : no. 82.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Bibliography : p. 60-73Summary: This paper addresses the causal impact of being raised in a sole-parent family on child well-being across the OECD. The question is answered by a cross-OECD meta-analysis and a literature review. ; The overall conclusion is that the literature on the effects of sole parenthood on child well-being, while extensive and growing in sophistication, lacks a clear consensus on the existence of a causal effect. That any such effect is small is a conclusion which can be asserted with more confidence. There is enough in the literature to suggest policy makers should be concerned about the implications of family structure for child well-being. Policy makers should keep a close eye on social trends in terms of changes in family structure, as well as on the developing research literature on the impact of family structure on child well-being. However, there may not be enough in the literature yet, in the absence of extra-scientific priors, to advocate radical policy change, especially if levers to change family form are costly to undertake or uncertain in effect. What should be clear from this review is that this is an area of social science which is rapidly expanding. It may well be that in another decade research will cast a more certain light on the questions addressed here.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

Disagreement in partners' reports of financial difficulty

by Breunig, Robert | Cobb-Clark, Deborah | Gong , Xiaodong.

Publisher: Canberra, A.C.T. Australian National University. Centre for Economic Policy Research 2005Description: 35 p. ill. PDF.Online Access: DOWNLOAD PDF Notes: May 2005Summary: We use unique data in which both partners report about household finances to demonstrate that there is often disagreement about whether the household has experienced financial difficulty in the past year. Four alternative explanations for this disagreement are tested using the data. The results indicate that disagreement may be related to the severity of the underlying material hardship rather than to gender differences, information asymmetries, or individual (as opposed to household) views of financial difficulty. This implies that standard surveys which collect information about the household’s financial position from a representative individual may fail to completely characterize the nature of material hardshipAvailability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).
