"Great qualitative comments from Andrew. The issues of intergenerational trauma and services to address this are so critical. Really best practice of quantitative and qualitative work"

"Poverty affects the ability of people to make healthy choices.  This leads to growing health inequalities which represent unfair and inefficient allocation of limited public resources. Policies, by creating ‘winners’ and ‘losers’, affect distribution of poverty,  which ultimately leads to health inequalities, which inevitably affect a person’s ability to generate income. So, if we are to make the right changes in policies (i.e. to address poverty as major determinant of health), don’t you think that first we should assess all policies for their impact on population, for which knowing the generative mechanisms of inequalities is essential?"

"The OECD figures are based on the Survey of Income and Housing (SIH) from the ABS which has a more precise measure of income than the Census (income components in SIH are captured at a very detailed level)"

"The zoom in on melbourne level with colors to represent time change tells a powerful story"
