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.
The following provides the detailed results of a scenario-based analysis of the repayment schedules for a deregulated higher education market in Australia for a number of common degrees in Australia by gender. NATSEM compares the expected repayments under the existing policy and compares that to a deregulated system under a range of scenarios for price increases. The modelling uses Census data for expected future income streams for different occupations, gender and age groups. NATSEM assumes a 5 per cent bond rate for the repayment under the proposed new policy announced in the 2014-15 budget.
