Abstract

For many parents, balancing work and family demands is extremely stressful, affecting work, relationships and parent and infant health. In response, governments around the world have instituted family policies, which have not yet been systematically evaluated for their effectiveness This project aims to address this limitation by systematically evaluating family policies to maximise the health and well-being of Australian families. Applying cutting-edge methods and recently released data, this project also aims to provide specific policy suggestions to guide Australian family policy and to improve the future well-being of Australian families.
