Every suburb Every town Poverty in Victoria

Research output: Book/ReportReportspeer-review


Everybody intuitively knows people live in poverty in every suburb, town and rural community in Victoria. Despite this, we can easily fall into the trap of labelling some places as ‘rich’ and others as ‘poor’. Popular culture and media reporting often reinforces this false view and can lead policy makers to overlook the real face of Victorian poverty. Public policy inevitably suffers as a result.
