Alternative approaches to measuring rental housing affordability in Australia. /

by Landt, John | National Centre for Social and Economic Modelling | Bray, Rob.

Publisher: Canberra, A.C.T National Centre for Social and Economic Modelling, University of Canberra 1997Description: v, 49 p. ; 21 cm.Other title: NATSEM. Discussion paper ; no. 16.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: April 1997. Includes bibliographical references.Summary: The study analyses a range of approaches to measuring housing affordability in the Australian private rental market. In particular, it compares traditional consumption-based measures of housing affordability with a new measure of housing affordability based on the Canadian core housing need model, which includes the suitability of the dwelling for the household's needs as well as its cost. The main findings of the study are that low income earners in the private rental market generally pay rents similar to those of higher income earners. This results in housing stress for some low income families and individuals in the private rental market.Availability: (1)

An agenda for new skills and jobs : a European contribution towards full employment /

by European Commission.

Publisher: Strasbourg European Commission 2010Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Communication from the Commission to the European Parliament, the Council, the European Economic and Social Committee and the Committee of the Regions INTO AND OUT OF WORKSummary: The European Union has agreed on an employment rate target for women and men of 75% for the 20-64 years age group by 2020: an ambitious commitment to the sustainability of Europe's social model, welfare systems, economic growth and public finances. Bridging the gap to the target will be no easy task. The crisis has brought the employment rate down to 69%, and the unemployment rate up to 10%; assuming the labour market stabilises in 2010-2011, achieving an employment rate of 75% by 2020 will require an average employment growth slightly above 1% per annum. With declining fertility rates, the EU working age population (15-64) will start shrinking as early as 2012; even with continuing immigrant flows. A skilled workforce is an essential asset to develop a competitive, sustainable and innovative economy in line with Europe 2020 goals. In times of budgetary constraints and unprecedented global competitive pressures, EU employment and skills policies that help shape the transition to a green, smart and innovative economy must be a matter of priorityAvailability: (1)
