|Abstract:||This paper contributes to the growing literature on poverty dynamics in Australian households. The results reveal that a range of life-changing events, household head, partner and demographic characteristics have an impact on both the likelihood of remaining poor and slipping into poverty. These findings have important implications for Australian policymakers: tertiary education and employment are key factors in keeping households out of poverty; having a disability or living in outer-regional or remote areas increases the probability of becoming poor and remaining in such a situation; and finally, life-changing events, especially becoming separated, can lead households into persistent poverty.||DOI:||10.1111/j.1475-4932.2008.00493.x||URL:||https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/full/10.1111/j.1475-4932.2008.00493.x||Keywords:||Finance; Families; Finance -- Poverty and Disadvantage; Families -- Households||Research collection:||Journal Articles|
