Summary

"This paper examines how the living standards of older Australians compare with those of the overall population, how much variation in living standards there is across the elderly population and how their living standards have changed over time. Home ownership, as an important aspect of the retirement support package in Australia, is also taken into consideration. The paper uses data from the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) Household Expenditure Surveys from 1988?89 to 2003?04 and the ABS Surveys of Income and Housing from 2003?04 to 2007?08"--Publisher's website.
