Youth Allowance, which was introduced by the Commonwealth Government in July 1998, is a payment for young Australians who are either:

    • studying
    • undertaking training
    • looking for work, or
    • temporarily incapacitated.

At 30 June 2003, the Hobart local government area recorded a rate of 38.9 persons receiving Youth Allowance per 1,000 persons, the highest in the state. Glamorgan/Spring Bay recorded the lowest rate in the state with 14.5 recipients per 1,000 persons.
