‘How we live now: Australian families at a glance‘, The Conversation, 24 May 2016
Collection of graphics introducing a ten-part series on the Australian family. The first article, on how diversity and change has strengthened the family is here and the full set of articles will be accessible here.
‘What does a modern Australian family look like and how does it compare with ten, 20 or even 30 years ago?’
The graphics look at changes in household types, average household sizes, child-bearing, same sex couples, marriage age, marriage duration, living together before marriage, divorces, age of mothers, and unmarried mothers. Sources for most of the graphics are the Australian Bureau of Statistics and the Australian Institute of Family Studies.
