The Australian Institute of Family Studies (AIFS) has had another successful year conducting research and communicating our research findings on factors affecting Australian families.

Our research program continued to explore new issues relevant to Australian family wellbeing and policy development, including child care and early childhood development, responses to family violence, the mental health of children of humanitarian migrants, gambling in suburban Australia, the effects of demographic change in Australia, and the complex needs of families of serving and formerly serving Defence Force personnel. The Institute also focused on our longitudinal studies, which continue to add great depth to understanding Australian families across the life course.

Following machinery of government changes in September 2015, the Hon. Christian Porter MP, Minister for Social Services, assumed responsibility for the Institute.
