Social Support Networks and subjective well-being in Queensland /

by Huang, Xianbi | The Australian Sociological Association.

Publisher: unpub. 2010Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Conference paper presented at The Australian Sociological Association (TASA) Conference. Social Causes, Private Lives (2010 : North Ryde, N.S.W.) Bibliography : p. 13Summary: This paper examines discussion networks (social support networks with whom people can discuss problems), perceived social support and their associations with subjective social well-being in Queensland, Australia. Data from the Living in Queensland survey in 2008 are drawn on for empirical analysis. Main findings include: (1) Queensland people have larger discussion networks than reported in US research (comparable references are absent in previous Australian studies). (2) Respondents‟ sociodemographic characteristics are significantly associated with the size of discussion networks and the purpose of using discussion networks. (3) Role relations are linked to different kinds of social support in different domains. Kin play an extensive role in providing various social supports. (4) The use of discussion networks and the sources of perceived social support have significant associations with life satisfaction but the size of discussion networks does not. These results indicate that in Queensland kin remain the most essential providers of perceived social support and personal networks affect subjective well-being. Although the research is exploratory, it produces new empirical evidence to enrich Australia‟s social network studies. Practically it has policy implications in terms of issues of social cohesion and community engagement.Availability: (1)

Submission to Inquiry into Liveability Options in Outer Suburban Melbourne : Outer Suburban / Interface Services and Development Committee (OSISDC) / Sonia Martin (BSL)

by Martin, Sonia | Brotherhood of St Laurence.

Publisher: Fitzroy, Vic. Brotherhood of St Laurence 2011Description: 22 p. PDF.Other title: Brotherhood of St Laurence submission to Inquiry into Liveability Options in Outer Suburban Melbourne.Online Access: DOWNLOAD PDF Notes: This submission was written by Sonia Martin, with contributions from George Myconos, Sharon Bond, Victoria Johnson, Nadine Cameron, Helen Kimberley, Iris Levin, Sally James and Paul Smyth, and edited by Deborah Patterson. Summary: The Brotherhood of St Laurence recognises the critical intersections between housing, employment, education, health, welfare, and access to services and facilities. We also recognise the complex challenges the state government faces in addressing the interconnected issues of population growth and housing affordability. The Brotherhood maintains that planned social infrastructure is the foundation of economically and socially inclusive development and is not a residual, post hoc response to economic and social system failures. Critical to this endeavour is a social investment plan that recognises appropriate urban change as an entitlement of citizens across the life course and ensures that all have what they need to lead flourishing lives. Supportive governance structures are essential. We support a model of collaborative governance across all tiers of government that allows for meaningful determination at the local level and builds capacity to work together. We have focused this response to the Terms of Reference on population, private housing, and health and services delivery issues and have limited our comments on infrastructure issues. Due to the limited local data on median house prices and population growth in outer urban areas specifically, we have not addressed Term of Reference 3 separately, but have included some data in other sections of our submission.Availability: (1)
