Summary Poverty persists in Australia despite the opportunities available in such an affluent country. How is poverty in Australia defined? What is absolute poverty as opposed to relative poverty, and who are the affected groups in our community? What are the causes of poverty? At a time when the national economy has avoided the major impacts of a global recession, why do so many Australians still experience financial hardship, housing stress and income inequality? Almost 1 in 6 Australians of working age is reliant on income support - does Australia's welfare system provide a safety net or promote.
