The health of Australia’s prisoners 2018

People in prison usually come from disadvantaged backgrounds, with poorer physical and mental health than the general population. They are less likely to have accessed health care services, and more likely to have a history of risk behaviours. Most people in prison are there for short periods, and many cycle through prison and the community multiple times. So, the health of people in prison is public health.

The report considers standard methods employed currently by analysts along with more sophisticated...

Impacts of COVID-19 on Australian agriculture, forestry and fisheries trade

Jared Greenville
This report explores the potential impacts on agricultural trade from the COVID-19 pandemic. For Australian producers, the recent drought conditions and bushfires will continue to dominate production outcomes for the 2019-20 season, with potential improvement due to improved seasonal condition likely for 2020-21. The COVID-19 pandemic is most likely to disrupt trade through supply chain and logistics disruption that could limit access to imported inputs or limit product reaching final markets.
