The Relationship between Sole Parents and Income Support

S. F. Lambert

Australian Economic Review, 1994, vol. 27, issue 2, 15-30

Abstract: Abstract Aside from growth in the aged population, the rapid growth in numbers of sole parents is the most marked demographic change to have occurred, not only in Australia, but right across the western developed world. The high prevalence of sole parent welfare dependence marks this change as a major social policy issue, at the centre of which is the role played by sole parent income support programs. This article discusses this issue and makes the argument that the growth in numbers of sole parents and the rate of sole parent welfare dependence has not been significantly affected by the size and structure of government provided income support.
