Summary

The report examines the prevalence of different life events among Australian adults, and the links between life events, personal and family characteristics, and personal wellbeing. Life events include such things as family formation or separation, serious illness or bereavement, financial or employment change, or moving house. The report presents insights from two large-scale national longitudinal datasets: the Household, Income and Labour Dynamics in Australia (HILDA) Survey - which provides a broad population view - and Growing Up in Australia: The Longitudinal Study of Australian Children (LSAC) - which focuses exclusively on families with young children. This report follows on from a literature review on the trends and impacts of life events, published as research report no. 20.
