The project will provide valuable information on characteristics of the income distribution for Australia, and the distributions for countries of socio-economic significance to Australia. The findings will enable Australian government and non-government organisations and international agencies to assess the effects of various policies such as those designed to reduce world poverty. The project can help Australia understand the most immediate needs of countries in the region, information that is useful for formulating Australian policy responses that can alleviate poverty and lead to improved living standards in the region, thereby creating a harmonious and safer environment within the Asia-Pacific region.
