Unpaid childcare across Australia



Data confidence level: Rating_circle_solid  Rating_circle_solid  Rating_circle_solid  Rating_circle_solid  Rating_circle_solid  


This FACT indicates the percentage of the population that provide unpaid childcare across Australia. In areas that have high levels of unpaid childcare, there may be a strong presence of single income families with one significant earner, or alternatively, provision of paid childcare could be lacking. Usually, unpaid childcare is provided by close friends or family members who are not reimbursed for their time. The level to which individuals provide unpaid care for (other people’s) children can therefore indicate the level of community cohesiveness in each city.

This FACT also appears in the Economy category, since it impacts families' financial health.
