Australia's welfare 2015 is the AIHW’s 12th biennial report on the wellbeing of Australians. It examines a wide range of contemporary topics in a series of analytical feature articles and short statistical snapshots. The report also summaries the performance of the welfare system against a provisional set of indicators.
2.1 million people lived on their own in 2012–13
68% of households owned their home (with or without a mortgage) in 2011–12
4.2 million Australians—just under 19% of the population—had a disability in 2012
2.7 million Australians—12% of the population—were informal carers in 2012
Australia's welfare is the AIHW's biennial report that presents reliable information on population factors that underpin the demand for welfare services, welfare spending and the composition of the community services workforce. This report examines the welfare of Australians through the life course, starting at childhood, then moving through youth to working age and the later years of growing older.
This edition combines analytical feature articles on a variety of contemporary welfare issues with short statistical snapshots following a life-course approach.
Both Australia's welfare 2015, and Australia's welfare 2015—in brief are available to purchase in hard-copy, as PDF downloads free of charge, and in HTML formats.
Additional material includes educational resources, supplementary tables and feature articles and snapshots.
