Plain Language Summaries
Whether it’s a policy briefing, a summary or the highlights of a specific research project, we’ve compiled a number of plain-language summaries to help you understand the research we’re doing, what we have found, and how we found it.
The following summaries are available below:

- The relationship between disability and suicide among Australian men
- Disability Policy Gaps in Australia
- A Fair Go? Measuring Australia’s Progress in reducing disadvantage for people with disabilities
- Where do people with disabilities live in Australia?

- Disability-based discrimination in Australia
- The impact of underemployment on the mental health of people with disability
- Disability acquisition, socioeconomics and mental health

- How to design effective funding systems for people with disability?
Australia is not the only country to have adopted an individualised funding approach and there is significant evidence from other countries about these schemes.

New research shows there is inequity in the distribution of funding for NDIS particpants, particularly in rural and remote Australia.
