Summary
Presents the peer reviewed proceedings of the 2011 CAEPR/ABS conference on 'Social science perspectives on the 2008 National and Aboriginal Torres Strait Islander social survey'. Conference covered topics including child development, crime and justice, culture, wellbeing, the customary economy, demography, education, employment, fertility, health, housing, income and financial stress, mobility, poverty, social exclusion, and substance abuse. The papers summarise the strengths and limitations of the 2008 NATSISS, discuss the types of policy relevant questions it can inform, and consider future survey design. -- back cover
