Abstract

Several researchers have argued that Australia is becoming more unequal. The paper explores the reasons why this might be the case before undertaking a social indicator based exmination of whether income inequality extends to well-being generally. Using 176 regions and eight social indicators and focusing on the period 1976-91, the paper shows that inequality has increased. The pattern of winning and losing is a complex one that suggests increasing differentiation between regions. Regional policy based on the devolution of spending and responsibility is advocated as one way of helping disadvantaged regions
