Site Spotlight - Australia's Welfare 2019

Australia’s Welfare

The Australian Institute of Health and Welfare (AIHW) produces Australia’s Welfare, collating data from multiple data sources. Australia’s welfare 2019 introduces a new format, rather than producing one large volume. Several new reports are available.

They are a mix of short statistical updates and longer discussions exploring selected topical issues.

Australia’s Welfare 2019: data insights is a collection of articles on selected welfare topics, including an overview of the welfare data landscape, and contributions by academic experts. It is available as a print report and online as a PDF.

Australia’s Welfare Snapshots are 41 web pages that present key facts on housing, education and skills, employment and work, income and finance: government payments, social support, justice and safety, and Indigenous Australians. They are available online in HTML (updated when new data are available) and as a compiled PDF.

Australia’s Welfare 2019: In Brief presents key findings and concepts from the snapshots to tell the story of welfare in Australia. It is available as a print report and online as a PDF.

Australia’s Welfare Indicators is an interactive data visualisation tool that measures welfare system performance, individual and household determinants and the nation’s wellbeing. It is available online in HTML.
