Report – To have and to have not: Measuring child deprivation and opportunity in Australia

26 February 2019

This report investigates levels of deprivation and wellbeing among children in Australia.

This report has been published by the Australian Research Alliance for Children and Youth (ARACY).

This report summarises the findings and recommendations of a study into deprivation among children in Australia.  The study looked into how well children are doing in terms of feeling loved and safe, having material basics, health, learning, and participation, using data from the Longitudinal Study of Australian Children.

The findings highlight the pockets of deprivation that exist in Australia, in particular for children with disability, children living in monetary poverty, and children living in jobless families. A more detailed report is also available.

Access the summary and full reports via the ARACY website.
