Given in the table the information on the percentages of underdevelopment people live in different Australian family types in 1999.
Overall, approximately 11% of Australia’s population was living in poverty at the time surveyed. Additionally, though sole parent had the highest rates of poor people among these types, most of the underdevelopment Australian was single and had no children.
As can be seen from the graph, in 1999, over one-fifth of the sole parent’s population was living in poverty, while it was 2% lower in single people at the same time. Considerably, though the rate of destitute couples with children only occupied for 12% in total, this rate represents for exactly 933,000 Australian people, over four times this number of sole parent type.
Regarding to the other types, it shows that 211,000 Australian people that lived in couple and had no children was also living in poverty. Remarkably, this number was even lower for single aged person and aged couple as there was only under 55,000 people per each which formed 6% and 4% from each type respectively.
