Number 7: Updating Australian budget standards costs of children estimates

This paper reports further refinement to the original research as part of a critical examination conducted by DSS, and then FaCS. In particular, the intention is to make the research more appropriate for, and relevant to, policy research and to provide revised and updated estimates of the costs of children.

Uses the Social Policy Research Centre's (SPRC) original budget standards research to revise and update the SPRC's costs of children estimates and develops estimates for a broader range of household scenarios.
