The National Centre for Social and Economic Modelling, a centre in the Institute for Governance and Policy Analysis at the University of Canberra, in conjunction with the Benevolent Society, has today released the index of wellbeing for older Australians. This index shows areas where older people in Australia experience low and high wellbeing across 5 domains. The analysis shows that housing is a large contributor to wellbeing, as well as education. Areas of very low and high wellbeing for older people tend to be in cities rather than regional areas.
The SAS-NATSEM Household Budget Report is an interactive web-based tool providing national measures of cost of living and standard of living for Australian households. The report broadens the cost of living debate by the inclusion of household incomes into a standard of living index. This quarterly report provides insights into the movement of the cost of living, incomes and the related standard of living for a range of different household types, including income levels, main source of income, renters, mortgagors, family type and states.
