Social conditions of Australia's children

Children, Australia: A Social Report (Catalogue no. 4119.0, $31), due for release later this month, describes the social conditions of Australia's children (defined as persons aged 0-17), looking across a number of aspects of their lives. In providing the most up-to-date statistics available, Children, Australia: A Social Report brings together data from both the Australian Bureau of Statistics and other official sources. The report focuses on the vast majority of children who live with at least one of their parents, but some information is also presented on young people aged 15-17 who have made or commenced the transition to independent living.
