This document is comprised of a collection of statistics based on the Sydney metropolitan area. The statistics cover population and family types, incomes, employment, housing, services including education, transport, long day care places, Community Support Funding (FACS), and local government expenditure on health, education and welfare. The data are derived from statistics produced by the Australian Bureau of Statistics and other government departments. The statistics were gathered for the Australian Institute of Family Studies' Australian Living Standards Study, a household survey which will measure the standards of living of families in inner, middle and outer suburbs and some non-urban areas of Australia.
The focus of this Facts Sheet is on broad family trends. It was prepared to celebrate the 30th anniversary of research by AIFS.
