    “The report said that while Australian children had been shielded from the worse impact, 13% still live below the poverty line.”

    That is a pretty disappointing summary, when the paper actually puts us at number 3 in terms of improvement in our child poverty rate (which is calculated in the report of 60% of median income…different from the usual definition of 50% of median income).

    And it’s even better when you factor in that Australia’s median income grew by 3.3% a year from 2008-2012, something a lot of other countries didn’t experience.
