Comparison of poverty trend and SDG target path

PovertyHeadline charts

This chart shows the percentage of people in poverty between 1999-20 to 2019-20 and compares this with the percentage of people in poverty if we were following the target set out in the UN Sustainable Development Goals, of which Australia is a signatory. The Sustainable Development Goal on poverty includes: “By 2030, reduce at least by half the proportion of men, women and children of all ages living in poverty in all its dimensions according to national definitions” (note that this chart uses 50% of median income in lieu of an accepted national definition of poverty in Australia).
