Aussies are Living Better than Ever [in the media]

Thursday, November 28, 2013

Australia is indeed the lucky country, but is life in Australia really getting better? The statistics say it is.

The Australian Bureau of Statistics’s Measures of Australia’s Progress report indicates that overall, Australia is doing better than ever when it comes to health, education, economic opportunities, and even political participation.

Over the last 10 years of time the average Australians' life expectancy has increased by 2 years. In fact, over the last 40 years of time our life expectancy has increased by 10 years. Two thirds of Australians now have a qualification after completing school, with one third of Australians having a university degree.

The economy is on a steady increase, even despite a recent global economic crisis. Cash flow is increasing with the net disposable income for everyday Australians now $10,000 more than it was a decade ago. 

Social researcher Mark McCrindle joins Nine’s Today Show to talk about the latest figures.
