Economic and Social Impact Survey - Victorian Report 2015
The key findings of the 2015 Economic and Social Impact Survey (ESIS) report for Victoria highlight housing and children's welfare as areas in which this state appears to be falling behind the rest of Australia. Thirty-six per cent of Victorian survey respondents said they were unable to afford a decent and secure home, five per cent higher than the national average. Victorian parents also rated themselves as less able to afford up-to-date school supplies or engage their children in activities both within and outside school time.
