Adult financial literacy in Australia : full report of the results from the 2011 ANZ Survey /

by ANZ Banking Group.

Publisher: n.p. ANZ Banking Group 2011Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: December 2011 Appendices pp. 117-137Summary: This report presents key findings from the 2011 ANZ Survey of Adult Financial Literacy in Australia - the fourth Survey in a series published since 2003. Financial literacy is the ability to make informed judgements and to take effective decisions regarding the use and management of money. Financial literacy is therefore a combination of a person's skills, knowledge, attitudes and ultimately their behaviours in relation to money. To capture this concept, we focused on the behaviours that can be considered indicators of a person's financial literacy. Analysis identified five behavioural indicators: keeping track of finances, for example monitoring account statements and household expenses; planning ahead, which includes behaviours such as addressing retirement income issues, using financial advisers and using insurance; choosing financial products, for example the extent of comparison shopping for financial products and services; staying informed, for example the extent to which people make use of financial information; and financial control which includes things like control of general financial situation and debt as well as ability to save money. Having identified the behaviours that indicate a person's financial literacy, the next step was to examine which groups performed well in terms of these behaviours and which groups did not. In other words, which groups display behaviours that indicate high levels of financial literacy and which display behaviours that indicate lower levels of financial literacy? Then, to help explain differing levels of financial literacy between groups, associations with peoples' characteristics such as age, education, household circumstances, financial knowledge, numeracy and financial attitudes were examined. These explanations are not complete, but they do assist in building our understanding of the characteristics of groups in the community who may benefit from improved levels of financial literacy.Availability: (1)

by Adair, Tim | National Seniors Productive Ageing Centre | Hosseini-Chavoshi, Meimanat.

Publisher: Canberra, A.C.T. Australia. Department of Education Employment and Workplace Relations 2011Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: December 2011 Bibliography pp. 35-38 Appendix p. 39Summary: The Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) projects that, between 2011 and 2020, the number of persons aged 50 and over in Australia will increase by more than 22 per cent. By 2050, the number aged 50 and over will have increased by over 80 per cent, or by 6.4 million. In comparison, the number of persons aged 18 to 49 is projected to grow by just over 35 per cent by 2050. This important demographic change, ceteris paribus, implies a greater role for mature age Australians both economically and in society more generally.Availability: (1)

Assets for all : a review of the Australian Government's $77 billion support for asset-building

by Brody, Gerard | Brotherhood of St Laurence | McNess, Elizabeth.

Publisher: Fitzroy, Vic. Brotherhood of St Laurence 2009Description: PDF, 14 p.Online Access: Electronic copy Summary: The authors of this report argue that Australia?s current asset-building policies largely support those who are already well off.

Australia's retirement income system : historical development and effects of recent reforms. /

by Warren, Diana | University of Melbourne. Melbourne Institute of Applied conomic and Social Research.

Publisher: Parkville, Vic. Melbourne Institute of Applied Economic and Social Research 2008Description: PDF.Other title: Melbourne Institute of Applied Economic and Social Research.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: November 2008Summary: "Over the past decade, changes to Australia s retirement income policy have been announced in almost every Federal Budget, with no signs yet that reform is coming to an end. Indeed, the Simpler Super reforms announced in the 2006 Federal Budget have been described as the largest overhaul of Australia s superannuation system since the introduction of compulsory superannuation. This paper describes the current retirement system in Australia and provides a summary of the historical development of the Australian retirement system, with special emphasis placed on the recent reform initiatives designed to increase labour force participation of mature age Australians, provide higher levels of savings for retirement, and reduce reliance on the Age Pension as the main source of retirement income. The final section of the paper contains a review of the existing research addressing the issue of whether recent changes to retirement income policy will in fact have their intended effects. At this point it is still unclear whether these reforms will increase mature age labour force participation or reduce reliance on the Age Pension. Indeed, some have argued that these policy changes create perverse incentives, and will encourage early retirement." -- Publisher website.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

Encouragingly, Australia's level of mature age employment compared to other OECD countries has improved considerably in the past decade.
