Social Indicator Reports

The Melbourne Institute measures a range of social indicators, from household expenditure to individual and social well-being.

Our research aims to determine the extent of economic and social disadvantage in Australia.

It also seeks to understand how such disadvantage creates barriers to education, employment and housing.

The Melbourne Institute’s social indicator reports explore three core areas of disadvantage – poverty, household expenditure and social exclusion.

They are valuable resources for anyone concerned with social welfare policy in Australia.
