    Abstract

    This paper provides new estimates of poverty in Australia, using data from the 2000- 2001 Survey of Income and Housing Costs, conducted by the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS). This study uses the OECD Half Median Poverty line, and examines both poverty rates and poverty gaps. It suggests that the unemployed and single people face a particularly high poverty risk.
