Poverty, social exclusion and disadvantage in Australia

Poverty Australia

This report shows an increase in overall poverty between 2000-01 and 2011-12 in spite of a strongly growing Australian economy. The report details poverty rates by a range of important household types such as family type, state, unemployed households and the age of the youngest child in a household. The report also finds that children in some regions have fallen behind with significant disadvantage experienced in many Local Government Areas of Australia.
