The Brotherhood's social barometer: living the second fifty years

Work-life balance Australia

The fourth Social Barometer examines the extent of disadvantage among older Australians through indicators of people's capabilities covering eight key dimensions of life, including employment, income, health, housing, safety and social participation.

The barometer concentrates on national data, and draws attention to the different experiences of retirement and ageing and the different phases of the life course which require distinctive policy responses.
