Author:  Peter Whiteford and Gregory Angenent

Provides an overview of the Australian system of income support within the broader context of social protection policies. Updating Peter Whiteford's original Policy Research Paper (published in 2000), the second edition incorporates recent data and reflects a number of recent policy changes.
