by Eldridge, Deanna | Beneforti, Mary | Macdonald, Malcolm | Australian Institute of Health and Welfare.

Publisher: Canberra, A.C.T. Australian Institute of Health and Welfare 2011Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Cat. No. PHE 144 Bibliography : p. 138-146Summary: This report provides the latest available information on how Australia's children aged 0-12 years are faring according to the Children's Headline Indicators-19 priority areas covering health status, risk and protective factors, early learning and care, and family and community environments. The Children's Headline Indicators are designed to help guide and evaluate policy development by measuring progress on agreed priority areas for children, and have been endorsed by Ministerial Councils for health, community and disability services, and education. Australian children are faring well, but results vary between states and territories, and across particular population groups, such as Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children, and those in remote or socioeconomically disadvantaged areas. It is clear, therefore, that there is scope for further gains across a number of indicators.Availability: (1)

Publisher: Canberra, A.C.T. National Seniors Productive Ageing Centre 2012Description: PDF.Other title: NSPAC research monograph ; no. 2.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: July 2012 Bibliography : p. 23-26Summary: With Australia's ageing population, it is increasingly important to understand factors that enhance the ability of older adults to retain independence and well-being into later life. While previous research in this area has traditionally focused on the characteristics of individuals, recognition is growing regarding the importance of the social and physical environment also contributing to health and happiness. As older adults are likely to spend a substantial proportion of their time in and around their home, neighbourhoods represent a particularly significant environment for this age group. The purpose of the present study was to increase understanding of the associations between neighbourhood characteristics and ageing well, with a sample of older Australians.Availability: (1)
