Number 45: The capacity of families to support young Australians: financial transfers from parents, co-residence and youth outcomes

This paper describes whether young Australians from different family backgrounds are economically supported by their parents and how this support, or the lack of it, correlates with their decisions about educational and labour market investments. The report distinguishes between two kinds of parental support: co-residence and financial transfers, using data from the Youth in Focus Survey combined with Centrelink administrative data.
