A portrait of child poverty in Australia in 1995-96

by Harding, Ann | University of Canberra. National Centre for Social and Economic Modelling | Szukalska, Agnieszka.

Publisher: Bruce, A.C.T. National Centre for Social and Economic Modelling, University of Canberra 1998Description: 32 p. : ill. PDF.Online Access: DOWNLOAD PDF Notes: Paper presented at the 6th Australian Institute of Family Studies Conference, Melbourne, 26 November 1998.Summary: In Australia, as in many other developed countries, there has been growing concern about increasing income inequality and a possible accompanying increase in poverty rates. One of the areas of greatest concern is children and how poverty impacts on their well-being (both mental and physical). In this paper the latest ABS income survey data are used to assess the extent of child poverty in Australia in 1995-96. The analysis suggests that most children in poverty in Australia are in that situation because one or both of their parents is unemployed, a sole parent, self-employed or one of the ‘working poor’.

A stronger, fairer Australia /

by Australia. Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet. ustralian Social Inclusion Unit.

Publisher: Canberra, A.C.T. Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet 2009Description: 86 p. : ill.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Bibliography p. 82-86Summary: Despite the high levels of economic growth recorded in Australia over the last decade, too many Australians are still excluded from the opportunities they need to create the life they want. They can be trapped in a spiral of disadvantage caused by family circumstances, low expectations, community poverty, lack of suitable and affordable housing, illness or discrimination often leading to early school leaving, long-term unemployment and chronic ill-health. The Australian Government, assisted by the Social Inclusion Board, has developed a set of principles to guide governments, businesses, community organisations and individuals as they formulate social inclusion programs.Our social inclusion priorities have been selected by using evidence about the causes and consequences of social and economic disadvantage. These priorities, where disadvantage is often a result of multiple, complex and interconnected barriers to participation, are: targeting jobless families with children to increase work opportunities, improve parenting and build capacity; improving the life chances of children at greatest risk of long term disadvantage;reduce the incidence of homelessness; improving outcomes for people living with disability or mental illness and their carers; closing the gap for Indigenous Australians; and breaking the cycle of entrenched and multiple disadvantage in particular neighbourhoods and communities.Availability: (1)
