Deep and persistent disadvantage in Australia : productivity commission staff working paper / Rosalie McLachlan, Geoff Gilfillan, Jenny Gordon.
McLachlan, R. (Rosalie), (author.)
"This paper is about disadvantage in Australia, and in particular, about Australians who experience deep and persistent disadvantage. Strong economic growth is a way of increasing living standards and opportunities. Yet despite growing levels of prosperity over the last two decades, and the unemployment rate more than halving, there are concerns within the community that some Australians are being 'left behind'."--Page 3.
