The Dynamics of Income Poverty in Australia: Evidence from the HILDA Survey, 2001 to 2019

Authors: Esperanza Vera-Toscano and Roger Wilkins

This report draws on 19 years of data from the Household, Income and Labour Dynamics in Australia (HILDA) Survey, spanning the period 2001 to 2019, to investigate poverty dynamics. We describe the extent, depth and nature of persistent poverty, the main events (or ‘routes’) associated with movements into and out of poverty, and the determinants of the lengths of poverty spells and ‘non-poverty’ spells.
