Poverty in Australia
ACOSS
eBook Edition: 2018

In 2015, the Australian Government joined other nations in adopting the Sustainable Development Goals, a framework for national and global development. The first goal is to ‘end poverty in all its forms’ with a national target ‘to reduce at least by half the proportion of men, women and children of all ages living in poverty in all its dimensions according to national definitions’ by 2030.

Australia currently lacks a poverty reduction plan. As yet, we do not even have an agreed national definition of poverty, or regular monitoring and reporting by governments on progress to address it.

This report seeks, in part, to fill this gap, to ensure that the Australian community understands the prevalence and profile of poverty in Australia. It uses the latest data from the Australian Bureau of Statistics. (From Author)
