Carers' employment

Understanding factors associated with Australian mental health carers’ employment

The main purpose of this project was a detailed exploration of the factors associated with employment for Australian mental health carers which might be targets to improve carers’ labour force participation, using data from the 2015 Survey of Disability, Ageing and Carers. This work builds on and extends previous research conducted by The University of Queensland for Mind Australia to profile mental health carers and value their time spent caring in economic terms.
