This chapter describes the research that forms the basis of the empirical material presented in later chapters. It notes that the Left Out and Missing Out Project was built on a unique partnership between researchers, policy analysts, and practitioners that developed a set of indicators of disadvantage which reflect and embody the insights of those experiencing poverty. It specifies that the project facilitated the collection of the data required to produce these indicators in a way that draws on the views of low-income Australians who are forced to rely on the support and assistance provided by community sector (welfare) agencies. It describes key features of the project and some of the background data produced from the Community Understanding of Poverty and Social Exclusion (CUPSE) Survey (originally conducted in 2006).

Keywords:   research, empirical material, disadvantage, policy analysts, poverty, low-income Australians, community sector, welfare
