Research output: Book/ReportCommissioned report


Carers provide informal care1 to people who need assistance due to disability, mental illness, chronic conditions, terminal illness or due to being frail aged. In this report, Access Economics examines the amount of informal care being provided in Australia today. Placing a dollar value on the work of informal carers is the first step in evaluating whether the current use of informal and formal care models is socially optimal, in terms of both efficiency and equity.
